This week Beck’s Hybrids announced a $62 million expansion of its headquarters in Indiana by 2022. It will add 56 new jobs in Atlanta, Indiana.

The expansion will include adding a seven-story, stand-alone processing tower, five new warehouses for seed and equipment storage and new office space. According to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, Becks will double its processing capacity to six million units over the next six years.

“Indiana is an easy state to do business in,” said Sonny Beck, CEO in a recent press release. “And because of that, we decided to build here in our home state. The foresight of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and Hamilton County officials to upgrade the roadways near our plant will allow us to double the soybean capacity at our headquarters, improve safety and decrease traffic congestion. Not only will this increase and add jobs here in Indiana, it will allow us to better serve the needs of all our customers throughout our 11-state marketing area.”

Construction will begin immediately and be completed by 2022.
