One of the oldest businesses in Effingham County will soon gain new office space.

Siemer Milling Company of Teutopolis broke ground on a corporate office building in late July.  Company President Rick Siemer said the new construction, combined with rehabilitation of the existing structure, will give the company about 13,000 square feet in office space.

Siemer said the new facility is to be completed in July 2014.  Once the corporate staff moves into the new facility, the existing facility will be renovated for conference rooms, training rooms and similar uses, a project that is to be finished by the end of July of next year.

Siemer said the project will allow the company to put together its corporate and office teams in the same facility for the first time in about 50 years.

Present for the groundbreaking ceremony were (LEFT TO RIGHT): Siemer Milling Vice-President of Customer Service Connie Barr, Teutopolis Village President Greg Hess, general contractor Ken Wohltman of K.
