ADM announces a $6.5 million plant will come to Decatur
Decatur - ADM announced they will invest $6.5 million to build a new plant in Decatur.
The plant will be built to further refine crude vegetable oil into an acidulated form that improves the nutritional value of animal feeds and can allow livestock feeders to use less grain in their animals' rations.
The facility is set to open in the second half of 2014. It will have a production capacity of 800,000 pounds per day, and will include a new loading station for trucks and railcars.
This announcement comes on the heels of the ADM's decision to move their Global Headquarters out of Decatur to Chicago. About 50 to 70 corporate level jobs will be moved to Chicago.
