On July 2, 2014 Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc., a leading global provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products, celebrated the official opening of its Marrone Michigan Manufacturing (M3) facility in Bangor, Michigan with a ribbon cutting ceremony and plant tours.
The M3 facility is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MBI. Acquired in July 2012, the original site included an existing building of 11,400 square feet and 12 acres of land. It contained the infrastructure needed for planned manufacturing processes and provided ready access to transportation services while being ideally located in an area with a highly skilled, educated workforce for filling needed technical, operational and management positions. The first phase of construction at the M3 plant enlarged the facility’s size by 6,600 square feet, adding fermentation capacity.
