Champaign-Urbana, Ill. — Granular, a wholly owned subsidiary of Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont (NYSE: DWDP), is expanding its Midwest regional headquarters in the University of Illinois Research Park.
Granular co-founder and CEO Sid Gorham hosted an open house this Wednesday, May 9, from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 1904 S. First Street #301, Champaign, Illinois, to commemorate the success of Granular within the Champaign-Urbana community as Granular moves into its new expanded office space.
“Since we first opened our office here in 2015, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Champaign-Urbana and could not be more excited to expand our footprint in this new building,” Gorham said. “Hiring talented students, like those from the top-notch agricultural and engineering school at the University of Illinois, is fundamental to building our organization. The support and collaboration of the university is second to none and we are thrilled to further strengthen that relationship.”
The new facility will continue to serve as a live training center for customers, as well as allow Granular to work closely with growers looking to maximize profitability on their operations.
“The decision by Granular to strengthen its relationship with both the Research Park and the greater Champaign-Urbana area is a ringing endorsement to the success of both,” said Laura Frerichs, Director of the University of Illinois Research Park. “Its remarkable growth presents numerous opportunities for students and the community alike. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
