Bunge looks to expand Iowa soybean warehouse

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — An attorney for Bunge North America Inc. says the agricultural company wants to expand at its soybean plant near Council Bluffs in western Iowa.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — An attorney for Bunge North America Inc. says the agricultural company wants to expand at its soybean plant near Council Bluffs in western Iowa.

Attorney Lawrence Beckman of Council Bluffs on Monday told the Pottawattamie County Board of Supervisors that the company wants to add a fertilizer warehouse. Beckman asked the county board to provide a tax abatement for the addition.

Beckman said if the county doesn’t agree to an abatement, the company would likely look to its operations elsewhere for the warehouse. Officials say they expect a decision by April 26.

The construction would require additional rail lines in the county. It is a $13 million project and the new warehouse is to add between four and six jobs.
