EFFINGHAM — Archer Daniels Midland Co. announced plans Wednesday to transform a warehouse in Effingham into a new pet food and livestock premix plant.
The 284,000 square foot food-grade warehouse will replace ADM's current three facilities in the city.
“This is a substantial expansion and improvement to our already significant pet food capabilities,” said Brent Fenton, president of ADM Animal Nutrition. “This state-of-the-art facility, with industry leading technology, will give us tremendous capabilities to meet a wide variety of customer needs not just today, but in the years and decades to come, as industry standards for quality and process controls continue to evolve.”
