US-based Beck’s has recently announced the purchase of the Bayer processing plant in Beaman, Iowa, for the use of soybean production and processing. The fully operational site in Grundy County will provide Beck’s with soybean seed processing capabilities and additional warehousing.

“At Beck’s, we base our growth and acquisition strategy and decisions with a focus on helping farmers succeed,” said Sonny Beck, CEO of Beck’s. “As we continue to expand into new states and grow our customer base, our family of employees and farmer-dealers remain dedicated to providing exceptional localized service. This new facility will allow Beck’s to maximize efficiency, stay ahead of demand, and deliver products faster.”

Ten of the former full-time Bayer employees have been hired on by Beck’s to continue operations at the Beaman facility, allowing a seamless transition this fall and winter to ensure soybean seed is ready for spring 2022 planting.

The facility features approximately 30,000 square feet of warehousing and is configured with all the modern equipment necessary for Beck’s to process and treat one million units of soybeans per year.

In addition to the new facility in Beaman, Beck’s has three other permanent locations in Iowa, including a processing and distribution facility in Mount Pleasant, a research facility in Marshalltown, and a distribution and Practical Farm Research (PFR) site in Colfax.
