Plans $15 Million Feed Mill Expansion in Dale County
OZARK, Ala. (August 27, 2013) – The Dale County
Commission approved tax incentives for the Pilgrim's Corporation located in
Pinckard today at its regular meeting.
The tax incentive grants Pilgrim's an abatement on their non-educational
state taxes on construction materials and equipment purchases as part of the
expansion in Dale County. Pilgrim's plans
to invest $15,312,705 in the project and employ an additional 23 jobs at the
new facility. Pilgrim's expansion
consists of constructing a feed manufacturing plant next to its new grain
receiving facility in Dale County.
Mark Blankenship, Chairman of the Dale County Commission
said, "the Dale County Commission and ODEC worked together to mitigate the
costs of the road maintenance due to the increased production of Pilgrim's and
to provide an incentive to offset the costs of the new construction and
Pilgrim's is the second-largest chicken producer in the
world and their corporate headquarters are in Greeley, Colorado.
