Stampede Meat Opens Operations Campus in Sunland Park, New Mexico

Stampede Meat opened the company’s modern manufacturing facility in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The company plans to have more than 300 associates.

In July, Stampede Meat announced they were expanding to Sunland Park, investing more than $36 million and creating up to 1,295 new food processing and manufacturing jobs over the next five years.

“We are thrilled to be here today celebrating Stampede’s first expansion outside of the Chicagoland area,” said Stampede Meat CEO Brock Furlong. “The support and excitement from the entire state of New Mexico, especially the community of Sunland Park, has been positively overwhelming.”

“After years of hard work to create a business-friendly environment, companies are choosing New Mexico because they know they are welcome here,” said Economic Development Secretary Matt Geisel. “Today, our commitment to critical economic development tools is paying off as we celebrate Stampede Meat’s expansion to Sunland Park and next round of hiring.”

“The ability for various groups like MVEDA, the State of New Mexico, the NMPartnership, and the City of Sunland Park, to come together in a seamless effort to work on attracting a company like Stampede, is a significant vantage point not found in every state & community,” said MVEDA President & CEO Davin Lopez. “Because of that joint effort, we are now fortunate to be part of this monumental ribbon cutting here in the New Mexico Borderplex!” Stampede was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Bridgeview, Illinois.

“We are delighted that Stampede Meat, Inc. chose Sunland Park as their new home,” said Sunland Park Mayor Javier Perea. “In the few months they have been working on getting their facility ready for production, we have come to know each other and become great friends. The company has been very supportive of our local events and we have worked with them diligently to help them fill hundreds of jobs needed for their first phase of production.”

Stampede Meat will be supported by New Mexico's closing fund, LEDA, as well as the Job Training Incentive Program, JTIP. LEDA is New Mexico's closing fund, a tool that recruits new businesses to the state while helping those that are already here grow and thrive.
