DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -
The Pilgrim's Pride plant in Douglas, that shut down in May 2009, is re-opening. The announcement was made by Pilgrim's Pride at 11:00AM Thursday.
Here is a portion of a news release presented by the company Thursday morning-
Consistent with its strategy of matching production to forecasted demand, Pilgrim's Pride announced plans to re-open its chicken processing plant in Douglas, Ga., by January 2011.
The company also plans to re-open two other idled facilities, one by mid-2011 and the other by spring 2012. The re-opening of these three plants will result in a production increase of 10 percent, or approximately 3.5 million birds per week.
"Pilgrim's Pride and the industry have taken out significant production capacity over the past two years. We fully believe that with the strengthening economy and improving fundamentals, consumer demand for chicken is increasing. By re-opening these facilities, Pilgrim's Pride will be uniquely positioned to fulfill our customers' needs," said Don Jackson, Pilgrim's Pride president and chief executive.
