Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. Invests $25 Million In Alabama Poultry Processing Facilities
The two-shift poultry processing facility in Enterprise employs more than 700 people, processes more than 1 million birds per week and provides products to some of the leading food service and restaurant chains in the U.S. The new feed mill in Pinckard will replace the existing feed mill currently located in Enterprise and will employ more than 25 people. The Company will begin construction of the new feed mill within the next 30 days. Renovation of Pilgrim’s existing processing facility in Enterprise will occur over the next six months.
"We are excited to announce our continued commitment to Dale County, the communities of Enterprise and Pinckard, local family farmers, our customers and the Pilgrim's team members who work hard everyday to make our business a success," said Jayson Penn, Executive Vice President, sales and operations, Pilgrim's Pride Corporation. "This significant investment is consistent with our strategy of relentless pursuit of operational excellence and will improve our efficiencies, cost structure and competitiveness, while creating a safer work environment for our employees."
"The local government has proven to be a valuable partner in our effort to modernize our facilities in Dale County," Penn said. "The assistance of the Dale County Commission and Ozark-Dale County Economic Development Corporation demonstrates their commitment to the community and the local workforce."
