ADM Animal Nutrition Announces Modernization of Feed Plant in Columbus, Nebraska
• New, high-tech facility is latest in series of upgrades and enhancements in ADM’s Animal Nutrition business
DECATUR, Ill., Dec. 8, 2016—Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) announced today that it will build a new, state-of-the-art feed facility to replace its current plant in Columbus, Nebraska.
“Columbus is a key location for our U.S. business, and is perfectly situated for a new, modern plant to serve our customers throughout the region,” said Brent Fenton, president of ADM Animal Nutrition. “Its existing infrastructure—including warehousing space and rail access, along with ingredient availability and proximity to our customer base—make it an ideal choice for our latest new facility.”
The new facility will feature:
- Expanded warehouse space to serve our customers more quickly and efficiently.
- Enhanced ability to serve increased demand for ADM products.
- Automated packaging and process controls.
- New production line to provide range blocks for cattle, dairy cows and horses.
“From Quincy and Effingham, Illinois, to Glencoe, Minnesota, to Columbus, we are investing to ensure that we can continue to offer feed customers across the country the high-quality, cost-competitive products they expect from ADM,” Fenton continued.
ADM is targeting completion of the new plant in early 2018. The current Columbus facility will remain operational during construction.
