Midwest at Glance
Global natural gas prices (natural gas is the main ingredient for nitrogen based crop nutrients) have been such that for the past 25 years the U.S. has imported over half of nitrogen-based fertilizers to meet its local requirements. The vision of MFC is to provide exceptional value to all stakeholders; customers, employees, share holders and the communities where MFC people work and live by displacing imports and manufacturing these products locally.
Our $2.4 billion state-of-the-art nitrogen fertilizer facility in Mt. Vernon, Posey County, Indiana will significantly enhance the local tax base and grow economic prosperity and growth opportunities. It will create more than 2,500 construction jobs and as many as 200 ongoing regular and contract employment opportunities.
