    ScottsMiracle-Gro Breaks Ground on $3.6 Million Expansion
    New expansion will add jobs and increase the production capacity at Ft. Madison, Iowa for its market-leading lawn and garden products

    July 2, 2018– The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, the world’s leading marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden as well as hydroponic growing products, today broke ground on a $3.6 million expansion at its Ft. Madison, Iowa Liquids Manufacturing Facility.

    To be completed by November 2018, the expansion will add over 40 full-time positions and include a new addition that will cover a total of 4,400 sq. ft., house an additional packaging line and upgrade existing equipment.

    "Today, we produce 70 percent of the liquid products for ScottsMiracle-Gro in Ft. Madison and next year, with expanded production capacity, we will produce over 95 percent of the Company’s Miracle-Gro®, Ortho® and Roundup® consumer products. " said Leslie Malinski, Director of Liquid Operations.

    Fort Madison will be the main producer in the nation for liquid lawn and garden products following the Company’s announced plans to close its liquids manufacturing plant in Pearl, Mississippi earlier this year.
    Scotts Miracle-Gro has owned and operated the facility at Ft. Madison since 1999.
