With years of experience in farming and cleaning their own grain, brothers and co-founders, Lavern and Sheldon Affleck left the farm and launched their own mobile processing plant. Constantly challenging themselves to think “outside the box”, Mobil Grain offers innovative solutions for forward-thinking producers and buyers.
In 2008, when Mobil Grain founder, Sheldon Affleck, found himself at a meeting where CN was discussing their intention to abandon this beautiful stretch of rail, he saw a golden opportunity. Through negotiation and shareholder investments this 136 kilometer track, which runs from Regina north to Davidson, soon became the heartbeat of Mobil Grain operations.
This efficiently-designed, loop-track port facility coincides with Mobil Grain’s unique ability to deliver a string of railcars ready for unload – enough railcars, in fact, to fill entire vessels. Located along the Mission River in Thunder Bay, Ontario, MobilEx Terminal Ltd. connects producers with competitive worldwide grain markets.
