MAUMEE, Ohio -- The Andersons, Inc. Turf & Specialty Group recently completed a $1.3 million upgrade to the Maumee, Ohio based plant that produces dispersing granule (DG) fertilizer and related products, including premium brands Contec DG, Nutri DG and Humic DG, an OMRI certified product. These products are part of the Group’s professional business products and are shipped worldwide.

The investment in the plant upgrade includes a state-of-the art closed-loop dust system, which alleviates airborne dust. This new dust system provides spark detection and suppression in the plant and provides additional worker safety. Completion of the upgrade allows for the new capability of producing Humic DG, the newest DG product, and assures customers of a clean product.

“The upgrade continues our commitment to worker safety and the environment” says Tom Waggoner, president of the Turf & Specialty Group. “It also increases our product quality and positions us for future growth by serving new and future customers in the turf, agriculture and horticulture markets with a premium product offering.”
