Frontier has announced that it is to be the new strategic storage partner for both grain and oilseed rape with Keysley Store Limited near Warminster in Wiltshire. The two companies have entered into a long term storage agreement for up to 45,000mt of combinable crops.
There has been an existing relationship between the two businesses and Frontier has had wheat storage space since 2012, but this has now been extended to include oilseed rape on an exclusive basis.
Frontier has the largest grain storage network in the UK and Andrew Flux, southern commercial director for Frontier is delighted with the new arrangement. “Having been involved with Colin and Sarah Godwin for a number of years now we know that they share our high standards and put the grower at the heart of everything they do. Their attention to detail and our in depth understanding of the markets are a great combination to help local farmers make the most of their harvest.”
Tom Lark, regional farm trader has welcomed the opportunity to expand the local offering to new and existing Frontier customers. “Because the stores are purpose built, Keysley is able to offer fast, efficient tipping. This combined with extended opening times helps to ease the pressure at busy times of year.”
Colin Godwin comments, “We are pleased to have cemented this long term partnership with Frontier. It will allow growers using the store access to a wider range of consumers, and we are looking forward to developing even more opportunities in future. “
Alongside the grain stores, Keysley offers state of the art drying equipment and is ideally situated alongside the A303, making it convenient for key consumers in the South and especially for Frontier’s Southampton Grain Terminal.
