American agribusiness Cargill is injecting $48 million into its Fort Dodge, IA corn wet mill to boost the site’s capacity for value-added corn products, according to an account published Monday in the Fort Dodge Messenger.

Citing information from the Iowa Economic Development Authority, the newspaper reported that the project includes construction of a new process building and the addition of storage tanks and transload capabilities.

“We continue to explore opportunities to expand this facility, as well as look for new partners to co-locate on our campus,” facility manager Sydney Pokorny told the Messenger.

Work on the expansion is scheduled to commence this year and reach completion by fall 2024.

The Webster County Board of Supervisors is slated to meet Tuesday morning to discuss possible incentives to support the project, the newspaper said. State economic development officials are also mulling incentives to lock down the investment.

No new jobs will be created through the project.
