The opening ceremony took place Friday, March 25, 2022, at the Ardent Mills Port Redwing facility in Gibsonton, Florida. From Ardent Mills, Dan Dye, CEO, Heather Dumas, chief people officer, John Barton, chief financial officer, Angie Miller, vice president of sales, Troy Anderson, vice president of operations and others were on site to celebrate how Ardent Mills and Bühler are transforming how the world is nourished.

Stefan Scheiber, Bühler Group CEO said: “The Port Redwing Mill is another highlight in Bühler’s great relationship with Ardent Mills. It is encouraging to work together with an inspiring customer, driving innovation through collaboration and implementing the most modern and efficient solutions in wheat processing in the US. This is an important milestone for Bühler, and another great example of innovations for a better world.”
“Port Redwing is a testament to Ardent Mills’ commitment to transform how the world is nourished and drive innovation– and we couldn’t have done that without Bühler,” said Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Bühler were exceptional partners at every step of the process, and their partnership allowed us to integrate in the insights and technologies we needed to build this new state-of-the-art facility. With the Port Redwing Mill, we are entering a new era in the milling industry.”
