Diamond V Begins 70th Anniversary Commemoration24 October 2012
US - Diamond V, the industry leader in microbial-based fermentation research and technology innovation, has begun commemorating its 70th anniversary.
Diamond V announced the upcoming milestone at the groundbreaking ceremony and open house for its high-tech global headquarters on 24 August 2012.
Diamond V will promote the anniversary with the slogan 'Celebrating 70 Years as the Trusted Experts in Nutrition and Health' through the end of 2013. Diamond V’s booth at EuroTier, held on 13 to 16 November 2012 in Hanover, Germany, will be one of the first events to highlight the 70th anniversary celebration.
C.W. Bloomhall founded Diamond V in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1943. After working for 39 years in the milling industry, Mr Bloomhall believed a properly fermented yeast culture would deliver greater economic productivity and economic returns to livestock producers. He established Diamond V and began producing a fully fermented yeast culture that quickly set the standard for the livestock and feed industry.
In the decades that followed, Diamond V grew to become the largest, most respected nutritional fermentation product manufacturer in the world.
While the Diamond V facilities, product portfolio, manufacturing technologies, and services have expanded significantly over the years, the Bloomhall tradition of quality, value and purpose has been steadfast for three generations. William A. Bloomhall II continues to serve as Chairman of the Board for Diamond V, and John C. Bloomhall is President and CEO.
