In a ground-breaking ceremony Thursday, Kent Nutrition Group started construction of their Deluxe Feeds Sheldon location. The northwest Iowa plant will increase volume and flexibility for swine, dairy and beef customers.
The expansion project will service customers in the four-state area with the addition of five new pellets mills, high-efficiency packaging equipment, grain cleaning and packaging innovations, two separate processing lines, and a 50,000-sq. ft. warehouse.
Projected completion date is early winter 2019.
“We have been making continuous improvements in our various facilities in order to deliver the quality products and services that our customers expect from our Kent brand,” said Mike Gauss, KNG’s vice president of operations. “This new state-of-the-art feed mill with its extended capabilities will increase capacity and versatility, so we can continue to produce our quality animal nutrition products, something that is a top-priority at each of our KNG plants.”
