GWIP, LLC, a managed affiliate of The Broe Group, has sold a land parcel within the Windsor, Colo., Great Western Industrial Park (GWIP) to Intersand America Corp., a global cat litter producer.
The planned 46,000-square-foot rail-served production, packaging and distribution facility will be Intersand’s first location in the United States and is the latest addition to GWIP.
Great Western Railway of Colorado (GWR) has been tabbed to provide direct service to the new facility. Both GWIP and GWR are owned by OmniTRAX, Inc., an affiliate of The Broe Group. OmniTRAX CEO Kevin Shuba and Broe Real Estate Group Executive Vice President Reagan Shanley joined Intersand’s President and CEO Stéphane Chevigny and local officials to commemorate the groundbreaking.
The Canadian-based Intersand’s new Windsor, Colo., distribution center will provide “a U.S. presence near the bentonite clay mines of Wyoming that further enhances supply chain efficiency for its raw materials via rail.”
“Intersand is thankful for The Broe Group’s support and expertise in making this project happen,” said Chevigny. “Expanding our production capability in the United States is an important milestone in our history and we are committed to bringing long term jobs to the Windsor community.”
“This new U.S. rail-served distribution center is a perfect fit for Intersand’s expanding business, the Windsor community and the Great Western Industrial Park,” said Shanley. “GWIP’s strategic location between I-70 and I-80 continues to demonstrate supply chain value while delivering the efficient, safe and green benefits that rail service provides.”
