“These achievements serve as testaments to our employees’ commitment to safety,” said Perry Sellers, the facility’s safety manager. “This is the second time our facility has reached the 1 million man-hours milestone since 2005, which is notable given that it takes approximately three years for our facility to reach 1 million man-hours.”
Since beginning operations for ADM in 1990, the Southport facility — located on the western shore of the Cape Fear River — has produced a variety of food ingredients for customers across the world, including citric acid, potassium citrate and sodium citrate. It also currently produces Citri Stim, a proprietary animal feed ingredient.
“Safety is a priority at ADM and our facility,” added Sellers. “All of our employees are dedicated to ensuring that everyone goes home safe at the end of each shift. We share a sense of community responsibility and are proud to produce products that serve vital needs around the globe.”
