Project Profile: Newly Outfitted Baldwin Seed Treatment Facility

At FS Construction Services, we get a chance to work on a wide range of different projects. We embrace the challenge each new client brings, whether it’s big or small or it takes us two days or two weeks to complete. But every now and then, we get a project that allows us to work with some of the most advanced and exciting equipment on the market. And lots of it too!

This past August, we fully outfitted the Baldwin Seed Treatment Facility with some top-of-the-line equipment. We constructed eight 3,000 unit bulk bins, a Tri-Flo Batch Hopper capable of treating 1,800 lbs. a minute, and an LPV-style seed treater from USC. Additionally, while FSCS Seed Treatment Specialist Justen Kempfer oversaw installation, he also provided on-site training of all the new equipment and was present for any questions our client had.

With the addition of this new equipment, the Baldwin Seed Treatment Facility is now the most advanced and up-to-date facility in the area, able to treat and load a 240-unit tender in 6-11 minutes (depending on seed size), half the time it took before. They now have everything they need to accurately treat seeds to the specifications of each farmer. In fact, thanks to the automation capabilities of the new equipment, the facility can save and store individual farmers’ “recipes,” ensuring their seeds are able to receive the exact same treatment year in and year out.

If you are looking for some new equipment for your one-of-a-kind operation, no matter the size, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. From grain drying to grain storage to grain handling and transfer, we have everything you need for successful seed treatment. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
