Platinum Crush President/CEO Focused on Team Building for BV County Soybean Crushing Plant

Construction continues on the Platinum Crush soybean crushing plant in Buena Vista County.

At Tuesday’s BV County Board of Supervisors meeting, Platinum Crush President/CEO Erik Lightner said one of his main priorities right now is to build a team for the plant…

The plant is scheduled to become operational in May of next year, but Lightner expects things to really get kicked into full gear at least six months prior to that…

Lightner said a website for the plant will be available in the next few months for prospective employees to apply. The soybean crushing plant between Storm Lake and Alta will create 50 to 60 jobs.
