A ceremony to mark the completion of the Bayer CropScience Muskegon Industrial Park was held this week. The new site was a $15 million expansion of manufacturing operations. Area elected and civic officials joined company global and local executives for a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate completion of the two-year project. The expansion is adding 10 full-time employees at the site, bringing total employment there to 60.

"The expansion demonstrates our company's on-going strategic commitment to providing agronomic solutions for U.S. corn, cotton, canola and soybean farmers," said Wolfgang Welter, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Industrial Operations at Bayer CropScience. "This multi-million investment in our glufosinate ammonium plant provides the capacity increase we need to further expand our highly successful Ignite brand herbicide in the United States."
