DECATUR, Ill. -- Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) announced Monday that it is exploring establishing a new global headquarters and customer center.

“Our company is growing and becoming more global and more customer-centric,” said Patricia Woertz, ADM chairman and chief executive officer. “We also need an environment where we can attract and retain employees with diverse skills, and where family members can find ample career opportunities.”

The agribusiness company did not disclose any potential locations for their new headquarters in the Monday press release, but made clear that they would keep their workforce of about 4,400 in Decatur.

The corporate headquarters would have about 100 people on staff.

ADM also maintains regional headquarters in Rolle, Switzerland; São Paulo, Brazil; and Shanghai, China.
