King Milling in Lowell

(Grand Rapids Business Journal) -- King Milling Co. will start production in its newest mill on its complex in November, bringing the total potential production capability at its Lowell facilities to 16,650 hundredweight of flour.

In other words, 1,650,000 pounds of flour. Every day.

Motorists often see King Milling's bulk tank semi-trailers full of flour heading for points all over the Midwest. However, virtually no one actually sees the flour itself - not even at King Milling or at any other point until it reaches the end user, whether that be a home kitchen or a large commercial bakery or food processor. That's because King's high-tech milling system is completely enclosed, according to Brian Doyle, president of the company.
