Liquid biofertilizer firm EnviroKure plans to invest more than $10 million to expand its Wells County plant.
The Pennsylvania-based producer of biologic amendments and organic fertilizers will build a full-scale manufacturing plant in Bluffton, according to Business Facilities.
The 80,000-sq.-ft. facility will house state-of the-art equipment to extract soil-building microbes from chicken manure and cultivate field-proven biofertilizers and biostimulants.
The company expects to complete the facility in late 2019.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. (IEDC) offered EnviroKure as much as $165,000 in conditional incentives based on the company’s job creation and investment plans. These incentives are performance-based, so until employees are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Bluffton has offered additional incentives.
