Governor’s Fellow Brett Highley was also along for the tour, demonstrating what a vital commodity corn is for the state of Indiana.

 

Director Hawkins noted, “It was a pleasure to discuss the different markets with the employees and the economic importance of GPC to the local agriculture community.”

 

For the past 70 years, GPC has been producing quality goods for the pharmaceutical, personal care, and food markets.  To reach growing demands for these products, the Washington, Indiana plant was built in 1999 to supplement the production of the Muscatine, Iowa corn wet milling plant.

 

Grain Processing Corporation is a subsidiary of Kent Corporation.
