Koch Foods announces $80M expansion at Gadsden plant

Koch Foods has announced an $80 million expansion at an Alabama plant that is expected to bring around 200 jobs to the area.

The Gadsden Times reports that company announced the move Tuesday. The project will add a fourth processing line to the existing Gadsden facility, increasing production capacity by around 30 percent.

The newspaper says this expansion will make the facility one of the largest poultry-processing plants in the nation.

Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton says construction will start this month.

Guyton says the expansion’s economic impact will be “immediate and drastic.”
