Southeast Missouri Port Authority to House Corn Grinding Plant

January 2,2006 - Posted at 1:08 p.m. CST

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. -  Construction crews will start building a new corn-milling plant at the Southeast Missouri Port Authority. 

Port officials say the five (M) million dollar project will employ about 60 people and will be up and running within six months. SEMO Milling L-L-C, which grinds corn for domestic and foreign markets, will be the first food-processing facility to locate at the port.

Port executive director Dan Overbey says the plant will include a two-story office building, a milling area and facilities to store corn.Company officials say they signed a 25-year lease at the port to take advantage of its rail, truck and barge shipping options. The company also benefited from a 500-thousand dollar state transportation grant. Part of the grant helped pay for street and rail improvements to service the new business.
