Post Date:02/09/2017 2:31 PM
The City of Ankeny is pleased to welcome Accelerated Ag Technologies, LLC (AAT) to Ankeny. AAT will be relocating its corporate offices to Ankeny in April. AAT’s rapid rate of growth has caused it to outgrow its current location.

The City Council recently approved a development agreement with AAT in the amount of a $24,000, partially forgivable loan to assist with tenant improvements and associated costs for this new location at 2302 SE Creekview Drive. AAT anticipates hiring eight additional high paying biotechnology skilled positions within the next 36 months to accommodate expected future growth.

Founded in March 2015, Accelerated Ag Technologies, LLC is a leading agricultural biotechnology company headquartered in Iowa’s Cultivation Corridor. AAT brings together several industry and university experts with a combined 100+ years of experience in agriculture production, biotechnology and the seed industry. The mission of AAT is to increase the reliability of the world’s seed supply by enhancing and enabling hybrid production systems. Since its formation, AAT has developed a broad intellectual property portfolio and technology that will improve and enable the production of hybrid crops. AAT currently has eight employees, all based in Central Iowa.
