Kemin Industries officially opened the company's $30 million worldwide headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa. The company utilizes applied science to improve the quality, safety and efficacy of food, feed and health-related products in a global market.

"The new headquarters is more than a building, it's an investment in providing the resources our team members need to move forward our company vision of improving the quality of life by touching half of the people of the world every day with our products and services," said Dr. Chris Nelson, President & CEO of Kemin. "By unifying our employees in one location, innovation and collaboration will increase and we now have a place to welcome our entire global team."

The new building, a $30 million investment, completes a five-year, $125.5 million overall investment in Kemin Des Moines facilities, officials said. Located in the emerging development area of the southeast corridor near downtown, the 94,000 square foot building houses work spaces, laboratories, collaboration areas and a fitness center.

According to company officials, “committed to feed and food safety, Kemin maintains top-of-the-line manufacturing facilities where over 500 specialty ingredients are made for humans and animals in the global feed and food industries, as well as the health, nutrition and beauty markets. The company provides product solutions and options to customers in more than 120 countries.”
