American Agriculture Laboratory Inc Expands Operations In McCook, Nebraska
The firm specializes in the analysis of soil, plant, petiole, feed, fat, water, fertilizer, manure, sludge, compost, seed and wastewater. Expansion allowed for the addition of new full-time positions which include a chemist, information technology specialist, lab technician, maintenance specialist, and agri-business/sales professional.
As an incentive, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development approved $297,060 Site and Building Development Fund money for building renovations.
“We were happy we received the necessary financial assistance to stay here in Nebraska,” said Laboratory Owner Kevin Grooms. “The services our lab and staff provide help ag professionals continue to meet the challenges of feeding the world’s ever-growing population.”
“Businesses, such as American Agricultural Laboratory, truly make up the backbone of Nebraska and the nation, providing competitive-wage jobs for rural residents who otherwise might have to drive long distances to find employment,” said Lt. Gov. Foley. “We are grateful to people such as the Grooms who are willing to help sustain and grow our smaller communities with much needed investment and jobs.”
