Nachurs Alpine Solutions announced the opening of its St. Gabriel, La., liquid fertilizer manufacturing plant. With the new plant, the company is looking to expand its business in the southern U.S.

The company explained that when the new facility becomes fully functional, reduced shipping costs and improvements in turnaround time will benefit farmers in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

Nachurs Alpine took an idle production plant and converted it to a modern manufacturing facility, and more upgrades are ongoing even as the plant is currently operational. 

Prior to the addition of this plant, Nachurs Alpine Solutions had two manufacturing facilities in Canada and three in the U.S.

The company contends that the Louisiana facility is located in a prime location on the Mississippi River. It is located on 69 aces, which were initially owned and developed by Ciba-Geigy in the 1990s. Work in putting the production facility into operation began in January 2013.

The upgrade required major renovation of structures including improvements to the 174,000 square-foot production facility, a 40,000 square-foot warehouse and various other supporting structures.

Liquid products of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium will be available through the facility. Nachurs Alpine has a team of sales and in-field agronomists throughout the south to emphasize education on phosphorous efficiency, nutrient management and helping growers maximize yield potential and plant health.
