Demolition process begins at Coshocton Grain Co.

| February 12, 2015

COSHOCTON – Eslich Wrecking Company from Louisville, Ohio, started its demolition project at Coshocton Grain Co. on Jan. 29 and will take an estimated three to four months to finish its work. The project is necessary after an explosion that occurred at the Grain Co. in August 2014.

Three concrete houses and one concrete silo will come down and the Grain Co. will rebuild near its new bin that was constructed in 2010.

Forensic engineers were able to prove that the 2014 explosion was an accident and that regular maintenance was being done by employees.

“We felt pretty sure of that and to have it confirmed was a big relief,” said Ron Warnock, elevator superintendent.

The rebuilding process is still scheduled to start in April and the Grain Co. is hoping to be dumping grain on or before Oct. 1.
