CTB: Multi-million dollar plant expansion
Grain Systems division plans to add 75,000 square feet to its manufacturing
facilities inMilford, Indiana, as well
as improving its existing facilities in Milford;
City, Missouri; and Frankfort, Indiana.
The approximately US$10 million project will encompass added floor space,
equipment upgrades and facility enhancements in Milford, as well as equipment upgrades in Kansas
City and process improvements in Frankfort.
According to CTB president and CEO, Victor A.
Mancinelli, â€œThe expansion project is driven by strong growth in the demand for
grain storage bins and related grain handling, conditioning and drying products
manufactured and provided by Brock, due largely to the dramatic increase in the
amount of corn required by the ethanol industry.â€
vice president and general manager for Brock Grain Systems, added, â€œThe project
will include expanding our
to enhance and streamline production and shipping facilities. As part of the
project, we will also be investing in key pieces of equipment and integrated
production lines in
efficiency and overall capacity in both plants.â€
Brock will also be implementing
efficiency improvements in its
plant. To support
higher levels of shipments associated with the increased demand, Brock
anticipates modest increases in overall employment levels, tempered by improved
productivity expected as a result of the initiative.
