Moultrie wants more "packers"

March 8, 2006

Moultrie -- A south Georgia meat processing plant is expanding, and that means about a hundred new jobs.

National Beef has announced a $3.4 million expansion to their plant in Moultrie. The company will break ground next week on a 17,000 square foot box cooler that will allow the plant to keep up with the growth of their biggest customer.

"Wal-Mart is continuing steady growth in the southeast. This expansion is just meant to keep up pace with theirs and provide a quality service to Wal-Mart," said general manager Mitch Hansen.

Construction is expected to take about four months. Hiring has already started, and they are still looking for about 70 more people.
