JBS United has acquired a feed mill and the surrounding property in Washington, Iowa, that was previously owned by Practical Environmental Solutions.
“The addition of the Washington, Iowa, feed mill facility will complement the company’s existing presence in the state as well as regionally in the Midwest,” notes Steve Schneider, JBS United’s operations manager. “This will allow JBS United to expand in the region and better serve our customers.”
The mill and property consist of two acres of land, 27,000 square feet of warehouse space, 44,000 cubic feet of outdoor storage bin capacity and 34,000 cubic feet of interior storage space. “This is a true expansion of the business,” according to Doug Webel, chief operating officer of JBS United. “This was a planned, strategic acquisition that will position us to better serve the region in the future.”
JBS United operates six additional company-owned production facilities throughout the United States, focusing on pre-mix and base-mix products. JBS United provides nutrition products manufactured primarily in the form of feed pre-mixes, base mixes, nursery starter feeds and feed additives.
“Adding this additional feed mill to the list of JBS United facilities is another example of our commitment to providing high-quality animal-nutrition products and services that exceed our customers’ expectations,” Schneider adds. “This will help us maintain our position as one of the leading animal-nutrition providers in the country.”
