The expansion, announced at the Gadsden City Council today, involved the City of Gadsden’s Economic Development team and Gadsden Industrial Development Authority.

Construction is expected to start this month.

The expansion will create one of the nation’s largest poultry processing plants, with a payroll of approximately $4.8 million.

Etowah County expects about $214,000 through sales and use tax during construction of the facility, and about $4 million in state, county and city education taxes over ten years. The City of Gadsden will receive $1 million over ten years.
