USA: Cat litter producer Intersand has begun construction of a rail-served production, packaging and distribution facility at the Great Western Industrial Park in Windsor, Colorado. GWIP is owned by short line group OmniTRAX, whose Great Western Railway of Colorado will provide direct rail services to the new facility.
‘This new US rail-served distribution centre is a perfect fit for Intersand’s expanding business, the Windsor community and the Great Western Industrial Park’, said Reagan Shanley, Executive Vice-President of the Broe Real Estate Group business of OmniTrax’s parent company The Broe Group. ‘GWIP’s strategic location between I-70 and I-80 continues to demonstrate supply chain value while delivering the efficient, safe and green benefits that rail service provides.’
Canadian company Intersand exports cat litter to 47 countries, and the Windsor distribution centre will provide a strategic US presence near the bentonite clay mines of Wyoming.
‘The Great Western Industrial Park continues its growth as a leading rail-served hub that provides supply chain and distribution efficiency’, said TJ Smith, GWIP’s listing agent with Collliers International in Denver. ‘Intersand’s need for rail, coupled with The Broe Group’s entrepreneurial approach, led them to GWIP, where they are joining an already impressive roster of tenants that includes Owens Illinois, Vestas and Halliburton.’
