Full-service flour milling company Miller Milling recently announced that it will upgrade and expand its milling operations at its Saginaw, Texas mill in order to meet growing demand for flour in the region.
The milling set is expected to be able to manufacture an additional 10,000 cwts of flour per day, significantly increasing its capacity to 34,000 cwts of flour per day. The Saginaw flour mill will become the third largest milling site in the US, following on from a previous expansion in 2019.
“The expansion of our Texas mill will meet rising demand around the region while allowing for continued growth with our existing customers,” said Joe Girdner, President and CEO of Miller Milling. “The Texas population is increasing dramatically. It’s important that we support our current and future customers, growing with them as demand continues to rise.”
The previous expansion in 2019 was also to increase the company’s ability to meet demands for flour. It also included a doubling of Miller’s packaging capacity and warehouse space, to be able to supply packaged flour to customers to meet demands for packaged flour.
With the site expected to begin production in winter 2024 after the expansion and upgrade, it will include milling technology with a continued focus on food safety, efficiency and waste reduction.
“This investment reflects our continued commitment to being a trusted partner for our
customers, providing them with high-quality products and excellent service,” said Kevin Sebby, VP of Sales at Miller Milling. “As a proud partner of the Saginaw community since 1999, we are excited about this expansion because it will support the increased need for flour in Texas and the surrounding regions over the next 5-10 years.”
