Tyson Foods Eyes $60 Million Expansion at East Pottsville, Pennsylvania, Plant

10/27/2017
Tyson Foods will invest nearly $60 million to expand its production facility in East Pottsville, Pennsylvania. The company will add an additional 164,000 square feet to its existing 182,000 square-foot plant.

A recognized market leader in chicken, beef and pork as well as prepared foods, the company plans to create 114 jobs over the next three years.

“This expansion will allow us to better service our customers, and ship our complete portfolio of protein-packed brands from one distribution center,” said Gregg Uecker, Senior Vice President of Network Planning and Integration at Tyson Foods. “New technology will also improve team member safety, while reducing our carbon footprint. We thank the Department of Community and Economic Development for their help on this project, and continued support of our efforts to grow in the community,” he added.

“Tyson Foods has been a major contributor to the Pottsville-area economy for years through this facility, and this expansion only adds to their local impact,” Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin said. “As Governor Wolf continues to improve the business climate in Pennsylvania, we’re seeing more and more companies relocate or expand here, and when they do, it’s a win-win for both the company and the community.”
