Meyn America Plans Westminster, South Carolina, Distribution Facility

Meyn America, a leading poultry processing solutions company, plans to establish operations in Westminster, South Carolina. The $10.8 million project is expected to create 25 jobs in Oconee County.

The new 80,000-square-foot distribution center will be located on 36 acres at the Oconee Industry and Technology Park. The facility will house and distribute parts for poultry processing equipment for its North and South American customer base. Operations are scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.

“We are excited to partner with Oconee County and the state of South Carolina to expand our business operations, a significant milestone in our global supply chain strategy. We especially want to thank the Oconee Economic Alliance team for its hospitality and partnership throughout this project. Our new Green Globes-certified distribution facility will not only accelerate and improve the accuracy of our parts deliveries to customers throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Latin America, it will also help us reduce our company’s carbon footprint by replacing deliveries made by air in favor of land and sea,” said Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V. Managing Director Joost Weel.

“We are proud to add another world-class company to our extensive portfolio of agribusinesses. We congratulate Meyn America on its success and can’t wait to see how the company will grow and thrive in South Carolina,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

A subsidiary of Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V., Meyn America is globally headquartered in the Netherlands. The company partners with renowned poultry processing companies in over 100 countries, providing poultry equipment and systems.

“The Upstate’s access to the Southeast market and multimodal transportation capabilities proved to meet Meyn America’s business needs. We’re excited to welcome this Netherlands-based company in the food processing industry to the Upstate region and look forward to seeing it grow,” added Upstate SC Alliance President and CEO John Lummus.

“Oconee County greatly appreciates and thanks Meyn America for the decision to invest and grow its operations in our community. Meyn America aligns well with the types of industries we seek to locate and expand in our county. The company’s reputation, long history of innovation, service to the poultry industry, financial and organizational structure, and leadership are excellent. Oconee County is getting a fantastic addition to our business community. Meyn America’s expansion to Westminster is the latest example of why Oconee County is truly Top Shelf for Business.” Oconee Economic Alliance President and CEO Jamie Gilbert said.
