From from herald-review.com:
DECATUR — Archer Daniels Midland Co. announced Monday it is exploring the establishment of a new global headquarters and customer center outside of Decatur.
ADM said it is not planning any layoffs in connection with the move to a new global center, but it expects to locate a small, corporate team at the global center with approximately 100 jobs relocated to the center.
The company is considering various locations for a global headquarters and does not expect to discuss those options publicly.
In addition to that announcement, ADM said it was making a number of multi-year financial commitments to economic development, education and social services to help ensure that Decatur remains a strong and vibrant community as the company explores establishing a new global headquarters and customer center.
“Decatur has been our hometown for 44 years, and it will continue to be an important center for our North American business. It is home to two of the largest processing facilities in our global network and our single largest community of employees,” Patricia Woertz, ADM chairman and chief executive officer, said.
“As we explore establishing a new global headquarters and customer center, we remain firmly committed to the 4,400 colleagues who will continue to work in Decatur, and to the economic strength and viability of the Decatur community,” she said.
