CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — Archer Daniels Midland Co. has opened a terminal facility in Chattanooga that will be used to transfer liquid and dry bulk sweetener products from railcars to trucks. The terminal will handle corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, dry dextrose, dry starch and dry and liquid sugar.
“The Chattanooga facility will enable ADM to efficiently ship high-quality sweeteners to customers in several Southeastern states,” said Chris Cuddy, vice-president and general manager of ADM Sweeteners and Starches. “Made from safely grown and produced ingredients, these sweeteners are used in many foods and beverages consumers enjoy.”
ADM said the terminal includes a 50,000-square-foot warehouse and sits on 17 acres in Chattanooga’s Enterprise South Industrial Park.
The company’s operations from its Jersey Pike and River Bend terminals in Chattanooga and its terminal in Cleveland, Tenn., have been consolidated into the new facility.
