Since the completion of our Oak Creek facility in the fall of 2022, we have steadily grown our capacities and capabilities as a trusted provider of Bacillus-based solutions. We are excited to announce that our growth has given us the opportunity to expand our footprint once more in the city of Franklin, WI. 

“With the rapid evolution of biotech solutions to solve modern day problems, there is a growing need for fermentation and drying capabilities of larger capacities,” says Mike King, Chief Executive Officer of MDG. 

Our new 117,000-square-foot facility will provide us with the necessary space to further our fermentation, freeze drying, and spray drying capabilities. This will occur in four phases, and once completed, we will have a total annual fermentation capacity of 22 million liters across multiple facilities. Our new space will allow us to serve customers even more effectively as we work toward our mission to Feed, Clean, Save the World. 

“With this expansion, we are continuing to answer the call for sustainable solutions to the world’s largest problems,” says Sona Son, MDG’s Chief Operating Officer. “Adding this new facility’s fermentation and drying capacity will increase our capability to grow and manufacture environmentally-safer microbial products.”  

We’re looking forward to continuing to grow our capacity in current and emerging markets. Our driving force is applying Real Science to a Trusted Process, yielding Proven Success.
