AGP Board Tours Sgt. Bluff Facility

The AGP Board of Directors recently toured the Company’s operations at its Sergeant Bluff, IA integrated soybean processing facility.  Over the past several years, AGP has made significant capital investments in the facility to increase capacity and create new opportunities for the Company and its members.  

Two major capital projects were completed this year.  The first was the construction of a new soybean oil refinery, which began operations in February.  The second project was an expansion of the facility’s biodiesel production capacity, which doubled the plant’s annual production from 30 million gallons to 60 million gallons.

“These projects were completed on schedule and within budget, and the startups of both plants went extremely well,” said Cal Meyer, Chief Operating Officer. “The expanded capacity creates new jobs and market opportunities in the region.” 

“AGP’s investment in the Sergeant Bluff facility is consistent with our overall strategy of supporting and growing the Company’s core businesses,” noted Keith Spackler, Chief Executive Officer.  “These projects enhance our integrated platform across all operating units.”
