KREAMER — In its 66th year of operations, Kreamer Feed continues to expand and add new jobs following a recent investment of several million dollars razing an original 1947 mill and replacing it with a computerized organic mill.
“We used the original mill, which was our first production facility, up until a month ago,” said vice president Jason Robinson, grandson of the founder George Robinson.
The new facility is used exclusively for organic feed and will allow the company to more than double production and improve efficiency. A separate existing mill is used for producing and marketing non-organic feed.
Robinson said the new mill is the largest investment ever made by the company and will create seven to 10 more 10 positions. The company currently employs 51 people.
“It’s the biggest project we’ve ever done and shows the commitment we have,” he said.
Company officials are excited to show off the new facility to the public at an open house from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24. State Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley is scheduled to attend.
