As a native Californian, fires are sadly a common occurrence in the state. So, when news of Tyson Foods’ plan to rebuild its Hanceville, Alabama, facility surfaced, thoughts of renewal and strength come to mind. The protein provider is planning on investing $208 million to replace the fire-stricken facility, located in Cullman County.

“This investment signals our continued support to the agricultural industry and jobs in Alabama, and we look forward to a renewed relationship with the Hanceville community and its leaders,” Jason Spann, Complex Manager at the Hanceville Tyson Foods facility, said.

AL.com reported that the 121,000-square-foot facility will be adjacent to its former River Valley Ingredients rendering plant. It is expected that the new rendering facility will be completed by the middle of next year.
