Ohio Short Line to Get New Fertilizer Plant

Ohio short line Napoleon, Defiance & Western will benefit from the placement of a fertilizer plant along its track.

The plant is expected to begin operations in the first quarter of 2024 and is being developed by Tessenderlo Kerley in Defiance.

The facility will make liquid sulfur-based crop nutrition brands Thio-Sul®, KTS® and K-Row 23® as well as sulfite chemistries for industrial markets.

Pioneer Lines President and CEO Alex Yaros said the company has invested $13 million in recent years to rebuild the ND&W with an eye toward being able to land such projects as the Tessenderlo Kerley plant.

Pioneer Lines is the parent company of the ND&W. Some of that $13 million includes grants from local, state and federal government agencies.
