The homegrown-Hoosier company will invest $8 million to renovate and equip two buildings at its 80-acre crop service center in Mentone. Adding more than 18,000 square feet of production and office space, the cooperative’s growth will enable it to centralize and expand its services, providing better efficiencies for its customers. North Central Cooperative has more than 250 full-time employees in Indiana.  They plan to begin hiring in Mentone by the end of the year.
