Norfolk, NE – Feb 3, 2022—A new, state-of-the-art soybean crushing plant will be built
in Madison County near Norfolk, NE, pending state and local approvals.
“This will be the first modern soybean processing facility to begin operations in
Nebraska,” said Nick Bowdish, president and CEO of N Bowdish Company LLC, which
develops value-added projects for the ag sector.
Groundbreaking on the 480-acre site is slated for the spring of 2022, added Bowdish,
who is spearheading the development of Norfolk Crush, LLC. He is also helping lead
the development of Platinum Crush, a new soybean crush plant in Buena Vista County,
Iowa, where construction begins next month.
Norfolk Crush will own the new Nebraska facility, which will cost approximately $375
million to build. The plant will crush 38.5 million bushels of soybeans annually, or
110,000 bushels daily. It will also create 50 to 55 high-quality jobs.
