November 2, 2015 – Mayor Buddy Duke, chairman of the Cook County Economic Development Commission, and commission members, announced today that Custom Ag Formulators, Inc. has made a major investment in Adel. The company, whose corporate office is located in Fresno, CA, will construct a new facility in Cook County’s 3000 acre South Georgia Megasite. Phase I of the project will create 16 jobs, and represents over $800,000 in capital investment, which includes the facility, land, and machinery and equipment. Plans for Phase II will be announced within 24 months and will represent a capital investment and job creation comparable to Phase I.
“We welcome Custom Ag Formulators to our business community and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” Duke said. “I am confident that our county’s competitive assets, including our strategic location and highly capable workforce, will prove beneficial for the future growth of the company.”
