Workers are perched atop one of the storage tanks surrounding the Koch Industries fertilizer plant in September.

Koch Fertilizer will invest $30 million in its Brandon plant to boost the amount of ammonia it produces here.

The project will include the installation of production equipment and process improvements and provides the foundation for a series of further ammonia projects to increase capacity, which could total 90,000 additional tons annually.

Construction for the project is expected to begin in the second half of 2014 with completion anticipated in late 2015. In addition to the planned increase in ammonia production, the company is also considering a project that would increase urea production capacity at the Brandon plant.

"This investment in infrastructure and increased capacity supports our continuing efforts to provide value for our customers," said Scott McGinn, senior vice president, North America. "We will continue to evaluate further production expansion opportunities."

Koch employs about 260 people in Brandon.
