Tyson Foods Inc. plans to expand a poultry-processing operation in southern Indiana and says it will add nearly 80 jobs.
State officials announced Friday that Tyson would spend $626,000 in new equipment to move chicken deboning work from
Arkansas and Missouri facilities to its Corydon plant.
Arkansas-based Tyson says it plans to have the new production
line in operation by early December at the plant where it now has about 650 workers.
The Indiana Economic Development
Corp. offered Tyson Foods, Inc. up to $160,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. The Harrison
County Economic Development Corp. will provide Tyson Foods an additional $50,000 toward work-force training and other expenses
to assist with the expansion.
