Syngenta hosts grand re-opening for Clinton, Ill., facility
• Increased overall site capacity
Paul Backman, head, Heartland South Commercial Unit for Syngenta, said the Clinton expansion is aligned with Syngenta’s commitment to thinking like a grower. “Agriculture will need to increase productivity to meet the demands of the future,” Backman said. “However, our commitment goes beyond just increasing productivity. It is about increasing productivity without using more land, water or inputs.”
According to Syngenta site manager Tyson Walters, the Clinton facility has a rich history of serving the seed industry, dating back to 1936. “Syngenta is proud to be expanding its presence in Clinton, and building on its legacy here,” Walters said. “This expansion reinforces our commitment to our customers, and to central Illinois.”
