is a part of Advanced Grain Systems Ltd. Founded in 1993
Advanced Grain Systems Ltd. was originally involved in
designing and building custom grain handling and
processing facilities. Over the years projects were
completed in the Canadian provinces of Ontario,
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta as well as the States
of North Dakota, South Dakota, Arizona and New Mexico in
home base is located in an agricultural area where
flaxseed is an important crop and opportunities were
emerging in the flax business, our focus changed from
equipment to the flaxseed business itself. In 1999 at
our initiative a group of investors agreed to proceed
with a flax plant project. Advanced Grain Systems Ltd.
was hired to re tool and re build an existing plant.
That project was completed on time and under budget.
Upon completion, family members were hired to manage and
operate the business. The business was profitable from
its first year of production and never looked back throughout
In 2005 having parted ways with the
investor group, a new plant was built along the CPR rail
line at Westroc (between Westbourne and Gladstone,
Manitoba, Canada). Our main focus was in 2 areas:
We built our
plant to receive bulk flaxseed from producers, to clean
that flaxseed and to ship via bulk truck or bulk rail
carloads. Most of it is shipped in bulk rail hopper
carloads. After reaching its destination the flaxseed is
farther processed and blended with other ingredients to
create new products. These new products are used by food
manufacturers and are incorporated into many of the
foods on your grocery store’s shelves.
We planned to
sell directly to consumers the best in flaxseed and flax
based products via AGSFLAX.COM.
very pleased to announce that AGSFLAX.COM is now fully
