BURT SAVINGS BANK MEMBER F.DJ.C, SAVINGS INSURED UP TO $15,000 COMMUNITY CALENDAR Thursday, Aug. 17, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Mo'nes-13 Sinclair Petrochemicals, Inc., is currently in the process of constructing a fertilizer operation in this area that is estimated to cost a total of nearly $500,000 and will directly involve six communities. With headquarters in Burt, the Sinclair expansion calls for satellite plants in Ledyard, Woden, Rodman, Haifa and Hanna. Sinclair officials stand in the foreground of the huge new dry-blending fertilizer building under construction at Burt. They are, left to right, Dan Norgaard, Sinclair agronomist from Albert Lea, Minn., W. L. Lundell, district manager for this area from Burt, and Sid Milner, assistant district manager, also from Burt. Heading the program on the local level is W. L. Lundell, a young Iowa State University graduate who is the district manager for Sinclair in this area. Lundell will have his offices in the main plant at Burt. He told the Upper Des Moines that construction on the seven acre tract just northwest of Burt off U. S. Highway 169 should be completed by the middle of September. Lundell explained that the largest building at the Burtlocation will be a 96' x 63' dry-blending fertilizer plant. The plant will have eight bulk storage bins with a total capacity of 1,800 tons of dry fertilizer. The building will also house a bag fertilizer warehouse, heated chemical storage and blending and shop areas. An office building and scale will also be added shortly. Sinclair has included a new railroad siding for transportation connections. By the time the entire operation is completed, satellite plants at the other five communities in the area will be equipped similarly on a smaller scale. Equipment for the Sinclair program includes 92 mobile anhydrous nurse tanks, 31 dry spreaders, 46 applicators, 10 new pickup trucks, and a huge anhydrous storage tank. This equipment will be used to service the entire district. The equipment alone involves an investment of over $210,000 by the company. •'. ^'^> , v.- Sinclair will begin operation with 11 full-tim£ employees and hopes to double this'figure as the company grows, according to Lundell. Additional employees will be added, depending on the season. Lundell and assistant district manager Sid Milner are both making their homes at Burt.
