Tomahawk Processing LLC, a beef processor, has announced it is building a meat processing plant in Laurens, SC. The investment of $5 million will create 26 new jobs.

“My partners and I are thrilled to announce that Tomahawk Processing will be locating in Laurens County, South Carolina,” said Platt Moore, managing partner of Tomahawk Processing. “We look forward to partnering with South Carolina producers to help bring local beef direct to consumers.” This statement was published by Upstate Business Journal.

The state-of-the-art, USDA-inspected processing plant will provide beef processing and packing services. It will also provide private label packaging, allowing producers to sell products publicly in South Carolina and other states.

“The lack of in-state processing capacity is probably the No. 1 concern I hear from beef producers in South Carolina, so this project is a big deal," said SC Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. "This qualified team with South Carolina roots will help strengthen the agribusiness industry in our state.”

Operations are expected to be operational in first quarter 2025.
