Chicken processor Lake Foods LLC is investing $8 million in the expansion of its Hartwell, GA facility and the creation of 130 full-time positions, the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced Thursday.

“The Hartwell location has provided us with an eager and highly trainable workforce, and has proven to be an excellent location for our food processing business,” co-owner of Lake Foods, David Strawn, said in a statement. “With assistance from both state and local resources, we have recently upgraded our wastewater pre-treatment system to accommodate growth, added new processing lines, and increased our presence in the business sector.”

130 full time jobs will be added to the facility as a result of the expansion, doubling the company’s workforce there.

Lake Foods specializes in sizing boneless breast into products based on customer specifications, according to the company’s website.
