SHELBYVILLE (AP) — Tyson Food announced a $5 million upgrade to its poultry plant in Shelbyville that would add 40 new jobs.
Wally Taylor, manager of the plant, told The Shelbyville Times-Gazette engineering work has already been under way and work on the expansion should be finished by mid-May.
The money would be spent to upgrade the plant’s chicken processing, packaging and labeling lines and installing new processing equipment. The company has started taking applications for the new jobs.
