Nunhems, the vegetable seed business of Bayer CropScience AG, will
invest nearly $19 million to expand its U.S. facilities in Parma,
Idaho. A company statement says Nunhems plans to build new seed
processing and storage facilities, upgrade equipment, and expand
administrative, marketing, and logistics functions. "This investment
lays the foundation for the sustainable growth of our vegetable seed
business in the U.S. and worldwide," says Joachim Schneider, head of
the bioscience business unit at Bayer CropScience. "The objective of
the expansion of our seed production in the U.S. is to efficiently meet
the needs of our customers in the future." The Idaho facility currently
has 150 full-time employees; no information about job creation was
released by the company. Nunhems and Bayer CropScience are subsidiaries
of Germany-based Bayer AG.
