Pork processing firm Triumph Foods expects to complete a $1.5 million expansion of its St. Joseph, MO processing plant this month, adding capacity to its ham boning production line with the purchase of equipment and technology, the St. Joseph News-Press reported Sunday.

About 70 new positions will be created at the plant as a result of the project, the newspaper said, enlarging its current payrolls by 25%.

Company officials told the News-Press that the expansion will help secure the firm’s position as a supplier to food service providers.

“Triumph Foods is continuously looking to improve its efficiencies and create value,” the firm told the newspaper, adding, “we are committed to continue to seek future enhancements that draw upon our capabilities and the ever-changing pork industry.”

The St. Joseph facility currently processes 6 million hogs per year, according to information on Triumph’s website. Another pork processing plant, jointly operated with Seaboard Triumph Foods LLC, in Sioux City, IA is slated to open this summer.
