New ADM Facility Uses Industry-Leading Technology to Advance Animal Nutrition

Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) celebrated the opening of its new high-tech livestock feed facility in Quincy, Ill., on April 3. This is the fourth cutting-edge animal nutrition manufacturing facility in North America opened in recent months by ADM.

“Animal nutrition is one of our key growth platforms, and this investment is another great example of the efforts we are taking to become the go-to partner for our livestock, aquaculture and companion- animal customers around the globe,” said ADM Chairman and CEO Juan Luciano. “We’ve made significant investments to expand and improve our animal nutrition capabilities. This is an exciting time for our business and our customers alike, and I’m proud to help celebrate the ribbon cutting of this impressive new facility in Quincy.”

The new facility is located next to the original feed manufacturing plant ADM purchased in 1998 from Moorman Manufacturing Company, according to a company release. It is one of six ADM locations in the Quincy area, where ADM employs approximately 500 people. The new plant will enable ADM to meet customers’ growing needs in the United States. It features state-of-the-art technology, including expanded warehouse space to serve customers more quickly and efficiently, enhanced manufacturing capabilities to serve increased demand for ADM products, dedicated feed line for non-medicated product, automated packaging and process controls and unique pressed tubs for multiple species.
