The ceremony will be held at the Weekley Brothers Industrial Park located at 3013 Evercane Road in Clewiston. Senior management of BioNitrogen and state and local officials will be in attendance and will discuss the plans for Hendry County.
"This is a major milestone for BioNitrogen. We are very excited to inaugurate the Hendry County site," said Bryan Kornegay, Jr., president and CFO of BioNitrogen. "We would like to thank local and state officials and members of the Hendry County community for their support of this project."
"We are excited about this investment and are hopeful this is the beginning of our county starting to diversify economically while creating new job potential," said Karson Turner, Chairman of the Hendry county Board of County Commissioners. "This is an important project to the County.
