Whitewater Mill Begins Production Using New Technologies

08/24/15

Todd & Sargent, Inc. client Whtewater Mill, LLC recently started operating their new flour mill in West Harrison, IN.  This joint venture between Siemer Milling Co. and H. Nagel & Son is considered the most modern flour mill in the world today!  They celebrated with an open house, mill tours, guest speakers and a reception on April 17, 2015.
Instead of expanding existing Siemer mills in Teutopolis, IL or Hopkinsville, KY, they decided that the logistics of supply and demand made a new mill more cost-effective. They will source their wheat from within 150 miles in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.  This new mill already employees 27 and will reach 35 when they start running at full capacity.
Todd & Sargent, Inc., along with equipment manufacturer Bühler, installed high-end milling equipment throughout the mill that grinds 23,000 bushels of soft red winter wheat a day, focusing on efficiency and safety.  This equates to seven million bushels per year while planning on increasing that number in the future.
More information on the new mill and the new technology used can be found in this Baking Business article.
