Calcium Products, Inc. has a new CEO.
Mike Hogan has been named to succeed founder Larry Moore, who grew the business into one of the largest producers of pelletized limestone and gypsum in the world. Moore plans to stay on with the company in a consulting capacity.
Hogan joins Calcium Products following a 24 year career with John Deere, where he was most recently the business director and factory manager for one of Deere’s tractor divisions in Augusta, Georgia. Previously he was the general manager for Deere’s sprayer business in the Netherlands and also managed certain tractor operations for Deere in Waterloo, Iowa. Hogan is an Iowa native and attended Iowa State University with a degree in mechanical engineering. He also has an MBA from the University of Chicago.
“Larry Moore has done an outstanding job of building a strong team and establishing Calcium Products as the market leader in pelletized limestone and gypsum,” Hogan said. “These innovative products improve crop yield and I’m excited to have the opportunity to lead the company into the future.”
Calcium Products recently opened a second plant in Fort Dodge, Iowa to meet increasing customer demand. The new plant complements the company’s existing operations in Fort Dodge as well as its pelletized limestone plant in Gilmore City, IA.
