BrettYoung Opens Turf Seed Processing Facility

NorthCore is a 60,000 square-foot facility at BrettYoung near Winnipeg.

BrettYoung is growing — and so are its operational capacities. To keep up with the demand from its customers who serve global turf seed markets, BrettYoung has made a $20 million investment in NorthCore, a facility equipped with the latest technologies for cleaning, sorting, and packaging turf seed. The 60,000 sq. ft. facility was built to achieve a new level in capacity while maintaining BrettYoung’s high standards of efficiency and quality.

We’ve had progressive growth every year for 15 years running,” said Cory Baseraba, BrettYoung COO. “Our customers continue to want more products from us, and we’ve been limited by what we can provide mainly by how much we can grow and process. With several initiatives underway to increase turf seed production in Western Canada, we still needed to increase our processing capabilities to service our customers. And to do that with the same high level of service we want to provide is what drove the decision to invest in NorthCore.”
