BANGOR, Mich. (WOOD) — A southwest Michigan bio-based manufacturing facility is getting a $10 million loan that’s expected to create up to 50 jobs.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Wednesday announced the loan for California-based Marrone Bio Innovations’s Bangor plant. It’s backed through the USDA Rural Development Business and Industry Guaranteed Loan program.
The $10 million will help Marrone, which manufactures “bio-based” pesticides and plant health products, add more product lines.
The expansion is expected to add as many as 50 jobs.
The Bangor facility was previously a biodiesel plant.
