WHAT THEY NEEDED
A state-of-the-art, bulk chemical facility in McLean, IL to serve as the hub for three existing bulk sites owned by BCS LLC. Its main concern was “accuracy” and “mixing ability” in order to meet the growing demands on American growers. In addition to mixing capacity, BCS also needed a repacking station for filling totes quickly and accurately on demand.
WHAT WE DESIGNED
Starting with a full-scale 3D rendering of the facility, FarmChem provided the roadmap, competitive pricing, installation crews, and industry leading automation through its partnership with KSi Automation. Using KSi software, the McLean facility operates eight stainless steel tanks, six fertilizer tanks, 12 mini-bulk tanks, and two mixing tanks, all from one computer interface.
