Tyson Foods invests US$59 million to expand its distribution center in Macon to include a 152,000 square foot addition to the existing facility.

The distribution center serves retail and foodservice customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

The expansion is expected to be completed in late 2018 and is expected to add more than 100 jobs, bringing total employment at the distribution center to almost 240.

“This expansion will allow us to ship our complete portfolio of protein-packed brands to customers from one distribution center, while also improving team member safety and reducing our carbon footprint,” said Gregg Uecker, senior vice president of network planning and integration.
