American food company Tyson Foods recently completed work on a new “mega line” and 35,000-sq-ft facility expansion at its Camilla, GA processing plant, Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp announced in a release Tuesday. With the addition of the new production assets, the firm plans to hire 100 new staff members. 

“This project is great news for our plant, our community, and our customers,” Eddie Chancellor, vice president of operations at Tyson Foods, said in a statement. “We are committed to the community of Camilla and are pleased to add 100 new jobs with the expansion.”

The Tyson Foods plant in Camilla makes chicken nuggets that are sold in McDonald’s restaurants, according to an earlier report on the plant by news radio station WABE. 

“Tyson Foods has been a great partner for the State of Georgia, and I am excited that they are expanding their footprint in Mitchell County,” Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Commissioner Pat Wilson said in the release. “I have no doubt that Tyson will see great success as this new expansion begins operations.”

Industry data shows that Georiga is the largest producer of poultry in the U.S.
