Tyson Foods Expanding, Adding 78 Jobs in Indiana

Tyson Foods will invest $626,000 to expand its poultry processing operations in Corydon, Indiana, according to the Indiana governor's office. The company plans to create 78 new jobs, with the hiring process to begin immediately. Tyson plans to use the investment for new equipment to relocate chicken deboning lines from facilities in Arkansas and Missouri. "Instead of continuing to ship certain cuts of chicken to outside plants in other states for deboning, we've decided to do the work right here in Indiana," says David Whittington, Tyson's Corydon complex manager. "We believe Indiana is a great place to do business and we are excited to be expanding during such challenging economic times." He says the company anticipates full production at the facility by early December. The state has offered Tyson Foods up to $160,000 in training grants, contingent on job creation; local economic development agencies will assist with an additional $50,000 for work force training and other expenses.
