Archer Daniels Midland is looking for a new home for its global operations.
The company is one of the biggest employers in Decatur… which has been rocked by heavy job losses in recent years.
But ADM’s plan to relocate its global headquarters won’t necessarily lead to more deep cuts in the Decatur workforce.
The company says it will move around 100 top executives to an undetermined new location.
Chicago is in the running to serve as ADM’s new global headquarters.
But the company’s North American operations will remain based in Decatur, and most of its 44-hundred employees there will stay put.
