Imperial Seed opens in CentrePort
July 11, 2017
Imperial Seed formally becomes the latest addition to the CentrePort inland port development today, with the official opening of its new facility on Park Royale Way. The company — a forage and grass seed specialist that sells to customers around the world — has built an $8-million complex on the roadway that runs alongside the north side of CentrePort Canada Way, west of Brookside Boulevard.
The operation includes a 20,000-square-foot seed-processing plant, office space, seed-testing lab and a 30,000-square-foot storage warehouse with 17 full-time employees and more on the way.
Imperial has 20 acres of land on the site, allowing it to do its own screening and research on test plots for the first time in its 60-year history.
