Although progress was slowed by January weather, the new feed mill under construction for Pillen Milling, LLC, northwest of Albion, is nearing its final stages.
Much of the mechanical work and installation of motors is underway, as well as electrical and other detail work. The main plant building roof and siding are yet to be installed.
The interior wood framing is in place for offices. The goal is still for completion in the first quarter of 2017, according to Jeff Heinrich, chief information officer at Pillen Family Farms.
Consruction of the $8.5 million grain storage and feed mill facility has been underway since the spring of 2016.
