Tyson Foods has announced plans to expand processing plants in Mississippi and Texas.

Tyson will expand its plants in Seguin, Texas, and Vicksburg, Miss., the company revealed in October.

The $58 million expansion at Seguin, about 50 miles south of Austin, will add 40,000 sq. ft. to the plant’s existing 109,000, with new lines and equipment. The plant, which makes products for foodservices, currently has about 550 employees.

“We’re excited about the expansion project at Seguin which is part of our commitment to meet increasing customer and consumer demand for Tyson chicken, while delivering on our strategy of accelerating long-term growth,” said David Bray, group president of poultry for Tyson Foods.

The Vicksburg expansion, announced earlier in the month, will cost $61 million and is expected to create nearly 50 jobs.
