Tyson Reveals $47 Million Expansion of Nebraska Plant

Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc. has revealed a $47 million expansion of its existing beef processing plant in central Nebraska.

Officials with the Tyson Foods, Inc. subsidy announced the plan Tuesday, which will involve construction of an additional warehouse at the company's Lexington location. Officials say the development isn't expected to add new jobs at the plant.

Construction is slated to begin this spring, with completion in mid-2016.

Steve Stouffer, president of Tyson Fresh Meats, says the project is meant to improve the capacity of the plant's boxed beef storage and distribution systems. He says the expansion is crucial for continued operational success.

Tyson Fresh Meats is the beef and pork unit of Tyson Foods Inc., employing nearly 9,000 people at its four Nebraska facilities.
