Koch Fertilizer has retained Black & Veatch, a global engineering, consulting and construction company, to help develop numerous projects to increase its North American production by more than two million tons annually through production enhancements and new capacity investments.

Initial stages of these projects will focus on production enhancements within Koch Fertilizer’s nitrogen production facilities in Ft. Dodge, Iowa; Dodge City, Kan.; Beatrice, Neb.; Enid, Okla.; and Brandon, Manitoba.

“Undertaking these projects will allow us to better serve the needs of our customers. With crop production continuing to increase, the demand for fertilizer is also increasing,” said Steve Packebush, president of Koch Fertilizer.

Koch Fertilizer is also investing in its terminal distribution system. The business has several active projects, including adding an ammonia terminal in Conway, Kan., a dry and liquid fertilizer terminal in Stockton, Calif., and various other liquid and dry storage projects across the U.S. and Canada.

“Driven by rapid changes in technology and a shortened application period for fertilizer, we are proactively investing in our distribution network,” Scott McGinn, senior vice president for North America said. “We continue to focus on expanding our storage and distribution system to meet the supply demands of our customers and the market.”

Koch Fertilizer’s distribution system consists of more than 60 terminals within North America. A variety of products are moved through its distribution system, including ammonia, urea, liquid fertilizer, phosphate, potash, and sulfur-based products.
