Agricultural products manufacturer Advanced Biological Marketing announced it will expand its production facility located in Van Wert, Ohio.
ABM focuses on producing sustainable and natural products that increase crop yields. The company has experienced significant growth over the past three years, according to a company statement, and is increasing its production capabilities to meet the market demand for its all-natural agricultural biological products. The market expanded so quickly that ABM moved its expansion plans up to two years.
The company is increasing the size of their facility by 78,000 square feet. The first phase of construction alone will raise ABM's production capacity by 10 times its current rate. The higher capacity will reduce lead times and help the company better adapt to market conditions. The construction will be completed by 2015.
