BANGOR, Mich.-Marrone Bio Innovations Inc. (MBI), a leading global provider of natural pest management products for the agricultural and water treatment markets, announced the groundbreaking of the Marrone Michigan Manufacturing facility in Bangor, Mich. MBI CEO Pam Marrone was joined by Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, and Bangor Mayor Jennifer Carpio-Zeller to celebrate the occasion. As a bio-based manufacturer, MBI is precisely the type of company that Senator Stabenow is looking to bring to Michigan.

MBI's acquisition of the Bangor facility marks the expansion of its manufacturing strategy to accommodate long-term growth and is expected to bring 50 new jobs to the region over the next few years. The 11-acre, 11,000-square-foot manufacturing site is a former biodiesel manufacturing plant that MBI plans to repurpose to produce natural pest management products, or bio-pesticides, for the agriculture and water treatment markets beginning in early 2013.
