Nufarm announces new manufacturing facility in Greenville, Mississippi

Allied Press Release – August 21, 2018

Morrisville, N.C. – Nufarm Americas Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion of their North American manufacturing operations with the dedication of a new facility in Greenville, Miss. The announcement took place today in Greenville with executive director of the Mississippi Development Authority Glenn L. McCullough Jr., Mississippi Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson, Congressman Bennie G. Thompson, mayor of Greenville Errick Simmons, Nufarm group executive of supply chain operations Elbert Prado, and Nufarm regional general manager Brendan Deck in attendance.

“This is truly a plant for our customers,” says Brad Hyman, vice president of crop protection sales. “Our customers needed a consistent, high-quality and efficient supply of our product to the southeastern U.S. region, and this new plant allows us to accomplish that with more success and flexibility than ever before.”

The facility will support Nufarm’s growing herbicide and cotton portfolios with state-of-the-art formulation and packaging operations. The 16-acre site was selected after an extensive review throughout the Mississippi River Delta region, and it features an existing 104,500-square-foot facility which will be fully renovated to suit Nufarm’s manufacturing needs.

Nufarm plans to establish the new plant with a two-part approach. Phase one will feature the hiring of a core team of 10-15 people and establishment of engineering, process equipment and technology infrastructure. Phase two will include the hiring of 30-50 skilled workers over five years, building and property upgrades, and further technology and infrastructure investments.

“We appreciate the partnership created between Nufarm, the City of Greenville and the State of Mississippi and look forward to becoming a member of the Greenville community,” says Tom Lyons, vice president of supply chain and operations. “Nufarm Greenville will be a perfect complement to our outstanding existing facilities, delivering safe, high-quality capacity for the North American market.”
Renovation is set to begin late this summer with commercialization planned for summer 2019.
