Out of three examples built of this version, only two remain; one in Fort Saskatchewan, and one in Magrath.
The other elevator in Vegreville was demolished in 2009.
Background From the early 1900s to the early 1980s, the wood grain elevator ruled the roost across western Canada.
The late 1970s were good times for Alberta’s farmers and for one of the major western Canadian grain companies – AWP.
With these factors in mind, the AWP was convinced that this was the design of the future, and formed a partnership with Buffalo Engineering – the result was Agritec Engineering Systems, which was owned 50% by both companies.
