Bayer CropScience has planned to build new plant in Shakopee, US. They plan to start construction of the $15 million project in August and complete it by January 2015.

The new facility will also have room for a future 44,800-square-foot expansion.

Bayer CropScience manufactures equipment used to apply products to seeds to protect them from insects and disease. It traces its roots in Minnesota to its 2004 purchase of former Gustafson Equipment, which was based Plano, Texas but had been founded in South Dakota. Shakopee is one of about 50 U.S. locations for German-based Bayer, best known for pharmaceutical products.

The new center will allow Bayer to have a more efficient operation and to modernize its production lines and warehousing areas, said Greg Coffey, a Bayer corporate spokesman. It will also be used as a space for the company to meet with customers, train seed applicators and visit with agriculture-oriented groups, he said.
