Gorton’s Seafood Plans Lebanon, Indiana, Operations

Gorton’s Seafood, a 175-year-old seafood company, plans to establish production operations in Lebanon, Indiana. The $89.3 million project is expected to create 163 jobs in Boone County.

The investment will include the construction of a new 110,000-square-foot facility located at 419 South Mount Zion Road. Operations are scheduled for 2025.

“Our investment in this new facility in Lebanon, Indiana, will allow us to continue our mission of making quality seafood accessible to everyone,” said CEO Kurt Hogan. “We look forward to a strong partnership with the Lebanon community, as well as the state of Indiana, for many years to come.”

Council members unanimously approved a tax abatement plan that will reduce real and personal property taxes on the Gorton’s facility by 50% over the next five years.

“Our state’s commitment to creating a competitive business climate continues to attract new investment from industry leaders, accelerating economic momentum statewide and creating new job opportunities and community development partnerships that benefit Hoosiers,” noted Ann Lathrop, Chief Strategy Officer at the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC).

Gorton's products are available nationwide in better independent and chain grocery stores. The company currently operates two production facilities in Massachusetts and Ohio.
