Amlat eyes March start to build

MONROE - Amlat, the infant formula production company planning to build in Monroe's north side industrial park, postponed its Nov. 25 groundbreaking ceremony and is now looking at March 2015 to begin construction of its new, 48,450-square-foot facility, according to Martin Shanks, Monroe's assistant city administrator and director of community development. The facility was expected to go online in the fall of 2015 and employ as many as 200 people, but that timeline is now in question. Shanks said he expects to have an update on the status of the Amlat project at the Common Council meeting Tuesday, as requested by some council members in December.
