Positioning for future growth opportunities, Trouw Nutrition USA is streamlining its manufacturing production, while continuing to serve its valued customers. To efficiently and strategically meet the needs of Trouw Nutrition USA customers, the company has announced the immediate closing of the Willmar Premix Facility in Willmar, Minn.
“The decision to close the Willmar facility was made after careful analysis and consideration of all options,” Trouw Nutrition USA managing director Jose Simas said.
The closure affects 23 full-time employees at the Willmar plant, who are receiving severance and benefits packages. “We are now focused on providing resources and support for the impacted employees, to whom we are grateful for their quality work and dedication,” Simas said.
