Monsanto had announced plans to expand its seed production facility at Waco, Nebraska. Included in the Waco expansion was part of a more than 100-million dollar investment it will make at four seed processing plants in Nebraska, Indiana and Iowa. The majority of those dollars will spent on the Waco facility and another plant located in Remington, Indiana.
The expansion announcement for Waco came just a year after Monsanto celebrated the opening of the 135 million dollar seed plant, which employs 70 people full time. The expansion added more jobs and will also increase the number of acres of seed corn being grown within about a 50 mile radius of the plant. The company planned to have the expansion complete by next fall’s harvest. The industrial seed facility construction consisted of two pre-engineered metal buildings for packaging and distribution.
CCC was the general contractor responsible for overseeing many aspects of the project including site work, foundations & slab on grade, PEMB erection, MEP systems, construction of conventional steel seed conditioning tower, and installation of seed conditioning equipment.
