ADM Milling, a wholly owned subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland Co. (NYSE: ADM), celebrated the completion of a substantial expansion at its wheat processing plant in Beech Grove, Ind., a suburb of Indianapolis.
“Our customers continue to grow, and it is our job to support them in that growth,” said Mark Kolkhorst, president of ADM Milling. “This new capacity will allow us to expand without sacrificing the service and quality that our customers throughout the region have come to expect.”
With the expansion, the Beech Grove wheat milling facility is now the third largest in the nation.
