Marion, IA – Marion Process Solutions will break ground on a new test facility that will be home to the newly formed parts and services team, Marion Performance Group, on October 11th at 11:00 am. The company is located at 3575 3rd Avenue in Marion. The new 6,100 square foot addition will allow customers to test their custom solutions on-site to design the optimal configuration for new mixers. Total capital investment is expected to be $1.8 million.
Marion Process Solutions specializes in the design and manufacturing of custom horizontal mixers in support of the food, chemical, mineral, plastics, and biomass markets. In late September the company was awarded tax-based financial assistance from the Iowa Economic Development Authority’s High Quality Jobs program. In addition to capital investment, the project is expected to add at least three new high quality jobs to their current staff of 55.
“Marion Process Solutions exists to create a competitive advantage for our customers, and the new test lab will be a wonderful asset in raising our bar of excellence,” says Marion Process Solutions President & CEO Lee Eilers. “Clients visit us from around the globe to tap into our expertise, and we strive to provide an exceptional experience beginning the moment that they arrive at our facility.”
Marion Process Solutions will celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2018. Their mixers reside in 73 countries and on 6 of 7 continents. Customers include global brands such as ADM, General Mills, MonoSol, McCormick, Keurig, GE, Colorbiotics, and 3M to name a few.
Marion Economic Development Corporation will join company representatives and Chamber Ambassadors to celebrate the groundbreaking on October 11th.
