Van Buren County pesticide manufacturer expanding


VAN BUREN COUNTY (WKZO)-- A bio-based pesticide and insecticide maker is getting bigger.Marrone Bio Innovations is getting ready to expand in Bangor.

The maker of bio-based fungicides and insecticides is receiving a $10 million guaranteed loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to fund the growth.

Up to 50 new jobs are expected to be created by the expansion, but company officials have not indicated when that project will start.

Marrone took over a closed biodiesel plant in Van Buren County, and USDA officials estimate when the expansion is done, the company will have a payroll over $1 million a year.
