Bartlett Completes $28M Expansion of North Carolina Grain Mill
Bartlett, a Savage Company, announced its completion of a $28 million project to expand and upgrade its grain milling facility located in Wilson’s Mills, North Carolina - the largest flour mill in the state.
Established in 1907, Bartlett’s business is focused on the acquisition, storage, transportation, processing, and merchandising of grain, supplying all classes of wheat, feed grains, food-grade corn, and soybeans to millers and processors, and producers.
As part of this project which began in 2021. the company added a third milling unit and significantly increased storage capacity on-site for wheat, flour, and millfeed, bringing total daily capacity to 20,000 cwts and storage capacity to 1.1 million bushels of wheat.
Originally built in 2000, the mill was acquired by Barlett in 2007. Five years later Bartlett expanded the site to add a larger 5,000 cwt milling unit, and as part of the 2021-2023 expansion, another 5,000-cwt milling unit was added. Once completed total storage capacity increased by 80 percent for wheat, 50 percent for flour, and 50 percent for millfeed.
