Pioneer to Expand Pioneer Production Facility
DuPont has announced plans to expand its Pioneer Hi-Bred production facility in York, Neb. The USD 13 million investment includes adding a fifth dryer and significantly increases bulk storage, which will boost seed production capacity at the facility by 20 percent.
“Our order position has increased over last year and we are meeting that demand because we have the infrastructure in place to do so,” said DuPont Vice President and General Manager and Pioneer President Paul Schickler. “To meet the growing demand for our products in the coming years, we have to further strengthen our seed production capacity and technology.”
The expansion is one of many steps DuPont is taking to ensure it meets rising demand for Pioneer® brand products.
Additional expansion projects are under consideration for Pioneer locations throughout North America.
