Tyson Foods will invest $200 million at its Amarillo, Texas, beef plant to expand and upgrade operations and build a well-being area for employees.
The project will begin this fall and should be complete by 2024. It involves construction of a 143,000-sq.-ft. addition to the existing beef complex. However, it’s not expected to add any jobs to the facility, which already employs 4,000 and generates an annual payroll of $180 million.
The Amarillo plant is one of the largest of the company’s six beef facilities. The complex produces commodity cuts of fresh beef and specialty products and includes a ground beef patty operation. The products are packaged and boxed for sale to retail and foodservice customers throughout the U.S. and internationally.
