This year , GROWMARK FS Mid-Atlantic has several new and improved assets to improve efficiency . Strategic planning and careful timing have led to welcome upgrades benefiting the customer base in the Mid-Atlantic growing region .
The Central Region ’ s Codorus , Pennsylvania location installed a new liquid storage tank to increase capacity and improve infrastructure . Work is underway on an addition to their loading dock for more efficient drop-off of product from tractor trailers .
In Lewistown , a new piece of ground application equipment was delivered late last year to the central Pennsylvania location . This equipment applies fungicides at the corn tassel stage , an alternative to the long wait for a scheduled helicopter application .
The East Berlin , Pennsylvania agronomy depot grew with an addition of a building for more chemical storage , completed just in time for the spring season .
“ We are really looking forward to getting our improved efficiencies into place this year ,” says newly appointed Central Region Manager Lyle Stephens , CCA . “ Our customers will definitely benefit from our increased service capacity , and our additional storage and logistics framework mean they will have even more sourcing options from GROWMARK FS . It will be a busy but productive spring .”
