Increased market demand is the driving force for expansion
VAN WERT, Ohio (July 22, 2014) – Advanced Biological Marketing (ABM) announces the expansion of its production facility at its corporate headquarters in Van Wert, Ohio. In the past three years, ABM® has had a significant increase in sales growth for its all-natural agricultural biological products and market demand continues to increase, which has moved up the facility expansion by two years.
As a leading domestic company that solely produces sustainable, safe and natural crop products that increase crop yields, ABM® is expanding their production facilities by 78,000 square feet over the next two years. This first phase of the project expansion will allow ABM® to increase its current production capacity 10-fold. The expansion will also help the company shorten product lead times and more quickly react to changes in market conditions.
“This facility expansion is a significant step for the company,” said Dan Custis, ABM CEO. “As we continue to grow, it’s vitally important that we are able to meet the ever increasing demand for our current products and to prepare for the development of future products.”
A growing international company, ABM® has additional facilities in Geneva, New York; Albert Lea, Minnesota and Lichtenburg, South Africa. Construction for its production facility expansion began this summer and is scheduled to be complete in early 2015.
ABM® provides solutions for commercial agriculture using biological seed treatments that increase a crop’s potential and yield. Its product line includes biological seed enhancements for corn, soybeans, wheat and many other production crops across the globe. ABM® headquarters are in Van Wert, Ohio.
