Trouw Nutrition, the animal nutrition division of Nutreco and a global leader in innovative feed specialties, premixes, feed additives, and nutritional services for the animal nutrition industry, announced that it has completed the acquisition of a plant in Southern Texas from ADM Animal Nutrition.
"This acquisition takes our vision to a higher level, adding a greater depth of resources across a broader base of customers," said Clifton Morgan, general manager of Hi-Pro Feeds. Trouw Nutrition USA is purchasing and integrating the plant into its Hi-Pro feeds organization.
"With this addition, we see a clear path for Hi-Pro to fuel further growth in support of Trouw's position as a global leader in animal nutrition," said Dan Baker, managing director of Trouw Nutrition USA.
Dairy cows and calves will be the primary species served by the acquisition.
The plant will bolster Hi-Pro's expansion by incorporating the block press line and other milling capabilities. The two businesses have begun integrating their operations and services during a twelve-month transition period, with Hi-Pro providing toll milling services to ADM.
Trouw Nutrition has been meeting the needs of livestock producers, integrators, feed producers, and distributors since 1931. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the company has locations in 28 countries and employs approximately 8,000 people.
