Marion CAN DO!
Economic Development Director
The unveiling of the Marion Cultural Corridor project and the advent of 3rd Thursdays both stirred excitement in the community.
The company added to its workforce, announcing in June that it was hiring 150 new employees to enhance its staff of 2,500 at the Marion operation.
The existing plant, which employs about 40 people, began operations in October 2008. According to the company website, the facility has the capacity to consume about 24 million bushels of locally grown corn to produce 68 million gallons of ethanol annually.
