Beck's announced an on-going expansion project for their processing and distribution facility in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. The expansion will begin with a new warehouse and dock space that is projected to be complete in November 2018.

Future plans also include a new structure for bulk storage and installation of a new color sorter technology. "Not only is Iowa one of our fastest growing markets, but our marketing area continues to expand further to the west," said Scott Beck, president of Beck's.

"As we continue to grow, it's important we have the infrastructure in place to serve farmers with the best in quality seed, performance and customer service. By expanding the processing capacity at our Mt. Pleasant facility, we'll be able to provide farmers with a high level of service that helps their operation succeed."

Purchased in 2014, Beck's Mt. Pleasant facility sits on 62-acres and currently features more than 105,000 square feet of warehouses, 500,000 bushels of bulk storage capacity, three double-pass dryers, machinery storage, as well as sales and agronomic support.
