Montana Specialty Mills recently announced plans to expand operations at their manufacturing facility in the Great Falls Agri-Tech Park in Montana.

Montana Specialty Mills processes agricultural commodities including non-GMO and organic canola oil, flaxseed, linseed oil, meal, among others. Their products serve as functional ingredients in a variety of products, including food, feed, and industrial applications.

The state-of-the-art crush plant and refinery processes 50 ton a day of high-quality oilseeds and distributes their products throughout the United States with a large percentage going to the Mountain States and West Coast. The $15 million expansion will include an additional building to house new equipment and increase processing capacity to 150 ton a day.

“We chose Great Falls because of the strong workforce, the geographic location and large number of producers who can supply high-quality commodities,” said Dave Loboy, President of Montana Specialty Mills. “The expansion will benefit the producer and the customer as we will be able to leverage the Great Falls area and state to execute a successful farm to table strategy.”

Montana Specialty Mills expects the expansion to be complete by late 2023, early 2024.The company has 25 employees at the Great Falls facility and operates a milling plant in Conrad.
