Tyson putting $60M in Pennsylvania hub
Tyson Foods Inc. is investing $59.7 million to expand its distribution center in Pottsville, Pa., as part of the company’s plan for growth and efficiency. Expansion will begin this summer with a 164,000-squarefoot addition to the northeastern location. Construction is scheduled for completion by late 2018, creating 114 jobs — nearly doubling the center’s workforce to 220 jobs.
The Pottsville distribution center serves retail and food-service customers throughout the northeast region including, but not limited to, Maine, New York, Connecticut and Virginia.
“The I-81 corridor has become an extremely attractive location for food processors, and I applaud Tyson Foods for choosing to grow right here,” Pennsylvania Gov, Tom Wolf said in a statement.
