Archer Daniels Midland Company announced today that it has selected Erlanger, Kentucky, as the site for its new information technology and support center. The center, which will open in the second half of 2015, will be located on the same campus as ADM’s WILD Flavors Erlanger offices.
“We are excited to expand our presence and create jobs in Erlanger by establishing our new technology center there,” said Marty Schoenthaler, ADM’s chief information officer. “ADM is growing, and this new center will help ensure that our IT support and infrastructure are able to support that growth.
The center will open in the second half of 2015 with approximately 100 contractors and ADM colleagues. The staff will eventually expand to approximately 200 ADM colleagues. The majority of the positions will be newly created as ADM expands its global IT support and infrastructure. In addition, 1ADM—the planning and implementation of the company’s new enterprise resource planning system—will be supported at the new facility.
ADM will maintain its existing IT center at the company’s North American headquarters in Decatur, Illinois, and will also continue delivering IT services from several other ADM locations throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia.
Eventually, ADM will be recruiting to fill a wide variety of positions at the Erlanger center, including project managers, business analysts and solution integrators.
