“As crop production increases throughout North America, we are seeing an increasing demand for fertilizer from our customers,” said Steve Packebush, president of Koch Fertilizer LLC.

“With this additional production, we'll be in a much better position to meet that demand. We look forward to breaking ground on this project, while continuing to evaluate enhancements at our four other North American facilities.”

The Enid plant employs 143 people with payroll and benefits totaling nearly $14 million a year.

The planned improvements are expected to bring as many as 30 more permanent employees to the plant. Construction could create at least 500 jobs over the next 18 months to 24 months.
