ST. JOHNS, Mich.-Agro Culture Liquid Fertilizers, a leading manufacturer and distributor of liquid fertilizer products across the United States, broke ground on a new corporate headquarters facility in St. Johns, Mich., this spring. The groundbreaking ceremony took place April 11, immediately next to the current headquarters in St. Johns.
In order to meet this continued growth, Agro Liquid embarked upon a process in November 2011 to find the right construction and design team for the task. The challenge, according to Vice-President of Operations Nick Bancroft, was to hire a team that could design and build a facility that would aesthetically merge the great traditions of farming with the cutting-edge technology that now pervades the agriculture industry.
According to Bancroft, the winning design aptly captured the essence of the ag industry's evolution from the traditional family farm to today's modern, sophisticated grower.
All told, the facility will include over 50,000 square feet of space, with ample offices for owners and employees. Additionally, the facility will have meeting rooms, a training center, an employee kitchen, an R&D area and a fitness room.
