Texas Northwestern Railway has landed a subsidiary of agriculture giant Agrium as the first tenant for its recently opened Panhandle Logistics Park.
The park is a 580-acre, rail-served industrial park at 6670 County Road E in Moore County, near Sunray and about an hour north of Amarillo.
Northern Agrium subsidiary Crop Production Services will develop a multimillion-dollar facility that will bring jobs and growth to Moore County, according to TNW Corporation, parent company of TXNW Railway.
Crop Production Services is an international fertilizer company based in Loveland, Colorado, and its new facility will function as a retail location offering agricultural products and services to the region.
Construction already has begun, with a targeted completion of early 2018.
Panhandle Logistics Park is a hub for railcar storage, warehousing, commercial development, and transload and transportation services. It offers shovel-ready sites with access to power and water.
The park is served by the TXNW Railway and offers Class One rail service through BNSF.
