About K+S KALI  ›  

Vast project in Canada

The Legacy Project is the biggest investment project of the K+S group. Since 2011 the company builds a new potash mine and production facility in Saskatchewan, Canada. The commissioning of Legacy is underway. From today’s point of view, production of the first tonne of potash should start in the second quarter of 2017 and not at the end of 2016 as originally planned. Regardless of this, K+S is still assuming to reach its target production capacity of two million tonnes at the end of 2017. With this exceptional greenfield project K+S ensures the future-oriented production of potash.

There are around 2000 people working for K+S in Canada in the construction phase. Many employees come from K+S in Germany and use their know-how and expertise to make the site as efficient and powerful as possible. With the start of the production the newly founded K+S Potash Canada will employ approximately 450 people.

Things have developed since the ground-breaking ceremony five years ago. Take a look at our photo gallery and see how the Canadian prairie turned into an ultra-modern production site.
