FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AMARILLO, Texas – Advanta US, a leading supplier of proprietary agricultural crop genetics and seed, has announced that the company has moved its corporate headquarters from Hereford, Texas to downtown Amarillo, Texas. Effective January 7, the new address for Advanta US is 301 S. Polk Street, Suite 350, Amarillo, TX 79101. The office has a new local phone number of (806) 350-7552, but customers can still call the pre-existing toll-free number of (800) 333-9048.
“Our new office in Amarillo provides us with a more accessible location and room to expand as we grow our business,” says Steve Ligon, NAFTA business director for Advanta US.
Although Advanta US is moving its administrative team to Amarillo, its seed breeding, production and processing facilities will remain in Hereford. In 2011, Advanta US completed a multi-million dollar upgrade to its Hereford-based seed facilities including new processing equipment, improvements to its quality control lab and expanded storage capacity.
