A statement on the SC Office of the Governor's page shared that Meyn America, LLC, a leading poultry processing solutions company, plans to establish South Carolina operations with a distribution facility in Oconee County. The company’s $10.8 million investment will create 25 new jobs.
Meyn America is a subsidiary of Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V. with global headquarters in the Netherlands. The company partners with poultry processing companies in more than 100 countries, providing poultry equipment and systems.
The poultry processing company's North American headquarters is in Ball Ground, GA. Meyn America will construct its new distribution operation at the Oconee Industry and Technology Park in Westminster.
The company plans to purchase 36 acres to build about an 80,000-sq-ft distribution center to house and distribute parts for poultry processing equipment for its North and South American customer base. Currently, the company’s parts are shipped via air from distribution centers throughout Europe to Meyn America’s customers — resulting in high CO2 emissions.
Meyn America’s new SC facility will house a robust parts inventory that will be delivered to customers over land and sea — transportation modes proven to be less carbon intensive than air, the statement read.
Operations are expected to be online in third quarter 2023.
