The move comes several months after the company said it halted work at another mill located in in Endicott City, MD. 

“We have appreciated the opportunity to supply many great baking companies over the years, and we sincerely regret that we are unable to service Mount Joy’s commercial flour customers beyond mid-April,” WRM Chief Executive Officer Tim Rogers said in a statement printed by World Grain

Featuring a milling capacity of 7000 cwts/day, Wilkins-Rogers’ mill in Mount Joy is the company’s largest, coverage by Baking Business said. The site also has a grain storage capacity of 575,000 bus.
