ADM is pleased to recognize our extraordinary team of employees at the Cleveland milling facility for earning the Company’s most significant operational award. The team’s total commitment to co-workers’ safety, producing high-quality ADM products and services, and promoting positive stewardship of the environment has set an example for ADM facilities around the world.
Plant manager Jim Koons credits the achievement to his team’s unwavering commitment to excellence. “These colleagues are a tight-knit group that work in a family atmosphere, and they all take ownership,” he said. “They know how the mill operates and they want to see it succeed. They want to make receiving this award a regular event.”
Workers at the Cleveland facility have been recognized many times for operating a safe environment and exceeding food safety requirements. Along with receiving numerous company quality and safety awards, the plant has also earned safety recognition from the International Association of Operative Millers.
Congratulations to the Cleveland milling team for achieving ADM’s highest standard of excellence for this exceptional award.
Constructed in 1902, the Cleveland flour mill has been owned and operated by ADM since 1991. The 17 mill employees produce over 600,000 pounds of wheat flour every day. The flour is shipped to bakeries and food manufacturers for use in cakes, pie crusts, breading, candy bars, and snack cakes. Nearby Chattanooga is home to three additional ADM facilities: ADM Trucking, another ADM flour mill and our Southern Cellulose operations that process cotton into thickening agents used in paint, pharmaceuticals and food, and cotton linter pulp used in paper and filtration products.
Every day, the 27,000 people of Archer Daniels Midland Company turn crops into renewable products that meet the demands of a growing world.
