UNDER CONSTRUCTION When completed, the expansion will employ 420 new full time staff in addition to the nearly 1,000 current employees at the location. “We feel this expansion will help us sustain our presence in the state by improving efficiencies and adding production capacity that will and provide a solid foundation for years to come,” said Jerry Petersen, JBS director of operations at the Hyrum plant. JBS USA Holdings Inc. – formerly Swift Foods Company – is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of JBS SA, headquartered in São Paulo, Brazil. Looking ahead Expect industry construction projects, ranging from new plants to plant expansions and renovations, to continue – and even accelerate once the economy is back running on all pistons again. Equally important, expect industry brick-and-mortar projects to ramp up as global demand for meat and poultry products increase. Those companies ahead of the curve will be best able to cash in on anticipated increasing demand. ■ We would like to hear from you – to comment on this story or to request reprints, contact us by email at New plant construction and expansion projects Company City State Category & Status Operation/ Product Investment Employees (millions) AdvancePierre Foods Alef Sausage Enid Mundelein OK IL OH MO OH PA GA NC PA CA NE TX KS TN CA OH NE IN Expansion (announced) Expansion (underway) Expansion (announced) Expansion (proposed) New (announced) New (announced) New (announced) New (underway) Expansion (completed) Expansion and renovation (completed) Expansion (completed) Expansion (completed) New (completed) New (completed) Expansion (completed) Expansion (announced) Expansion (underway) Expansion (completed) Philly Steak Sausage & meat products Meat products Meat processing Prepared meats Meat products Beef processing Meat & poultry processing $1 $3 $14 $1 $21 $7 N/A N/A 30 N/A 50 76 93 20 N/A 80-100 N/A N/A N/A N/A 70 N/A 70 150 6 N/A American Foods Group Sharonville American Meat Co.
