Poultry processor and marketer Perdue Farms plans to invest $42 million to install a third cooking line at its Perry, Georgia production plant, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal announced in a press release Tuesday.

In addition, 125 new positions will be created through the project at the 30,000-sq-ft plant, which was acquired by Perdue in 2004.

“This expansion will help us meet the growing demand for no-antibiotics-ever and organic products, and maintain the high level of customer service and reliability our customers in Georgia and across the country expect from Perdue,” the firm’s chief executive officer, Randy Day, said in a statement.

In 2005, then-Gov. Sonny Perdue announced that Perdue Farms was investing $146 million to double the capacity of the plant in Georgia and add a cooking plant to the facility. The company also built a distribution center at the Perry location.

The plant currently works with over 140 local farmers to source chickens.

Gov. Deal’s release did not detail when construction is slated to begin or when the effort is projected to reach completion.
