Established with the venture of US-based Siemer Milling Co. and H. Nagel and Son Co., Whitewater Mill L.L.C. builds a new flour mill in Cincinnati Ohio.
Whitewater Mill L.L.C. is building a new flour mill in Harrison, just west of Cincinnati. A new business, Whitewater is a joint venture of Siemer Milling Co., Teutopolis, Ill., and H. Nagel and Son Co. of Cincinnati.
The new soft wheat mill will have daily capacity of 10,000 cwts. Buhler, Inc., Plymouth, Minn., has been engaged as the principal equipment supplier, and Todd and Sargent, Inc., Ames, Iowa, as the contractor for the building and equipment installation.
With a completion target of spring 2015, Whitewater is expected to have a workforce of 35 once it is operational.
While the decision to build the mill was motivated by what the partners view as attractive market conditions, heightened efficiency, food safety and security are central areas of focus in the design of the new mill, said Richard C. Siemer, president of Siemer Milling. “Nagel and Siemer see a great opportunity for flour milling in the Cincinnati area,” he said. “Existing and potential wheat supply and flour demand factors point to long-term success for this venture. Even more important, this will be a facility that addresses the most critical challenges of food manufacturing in a steadily more demanding environment. We and our customers, not to mention consumers and government, are establishing higher standards along the entire continuum of production — sustainability, efficiency, cleanliness of process and product. Flour mills are built to last a long time, to the point where some have outlived their utility. This plant is designed for the future, not the past. This plant represents what our industry must do to participate in the changing food supply chain.”
