One Door Closes While Another Opens: Local Jobs

In the wake of DuPont-Pioneer’s announcement that it’s closing its Mt. Pleasant seed production plant, a western Iowa-based company says it’s opening a large-scale facility in the Monmouth area.


The DuPont-Pioneer move will idle about 50 employees, but the Cloverleaf Cold Storage news, to be officially announced today, will bring an estimated 150 jobs to Warren County, Illinois.


In fact, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn will travel to west-central Illinois today to discuss the project and campaign on behalf of Illinois’ economy.
