Atchison plant up to full production

By | January 01, 2004
MGP Ingredients Inc. started to produce finished alcohol at its Atchison ethanol facility in early December, according to spokesman Steve Pickman. The plant's distillery was damaged in an explosion in Sept. 2002, and unfinished alcohol had been shipped to a Pekin, Ill., facility for finishing since then. Pickman said the reconstruction was completed a month ahead of schedule. Burns & McDonnell of Kansas City, Mo., was the general contractor on the project
