The Largest Cotton Warehouse in the South
Staplcotn added cotton warehousing to its services with the construction of a cotton compress and a 145,000-bale warehouse in 1965. Today, this modern facility located in Rising Sun, Mississippi, just south of Greenwood, routinely handles over 300,000 bales annually and is the largest cotton warehouse at a single location in the Mid-South.
In addition to the Rising Sun location, Staplcotn operates 11 other facilities in the Mid-South and Southeast and has a licensed capacity of approximately one million bales. The most recent additions to the Warehouse division are located on the Georgia coast, central North Carolina, and northeastern South Carolina. The strategic placement of these plants has been instrumental not only in cotton storage, but in expediting shipments and, therefore, providing quality service to mill customers, both at home and abroad.
Warehouses are licensed and bonded to meet the requirements of the Commodity Credit Corporation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Competitive tariffs are charged for handling and storage. The earnings from the warehouses are returned to the warehouse patrons at the end of each fiscal year.
