Tyson decides against rebuilding fire-damaged Alabama plant
posted by admin on 09/01/07

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — Tyson Foods, Inc. announced Monday it will not rebuild its fire-damaged poultry plant in Heflin, Ala., but will consider options that include expanding an existing plant or building a new plant at or near another Alabama location.

The company's Heflin facility has been closed since September, when the production area was extensively damaged by fire. The plant, which employed 267 people, was not in operation at the time and no one was hurt.

Most workers displaced by the fire accepted positions at other Tyson locations in Alabama, according to the company.

Tyson's other Alabama plants are located in Albertville, Ashland, Blountsville and Gadsden. They provide employment to about 3,300 people.

"It's difficult for us to leave Heflin, especially given the tremendous support we've received from the community over the years," said Bill Lovette, a senior group vice president for Tyson. "However, we've concluded some of our other plant locations are better suited for the possible construction of a new plant or a plant expansion, should we decide to proceed with such a project. We hope to make a final decision in the first half of calendar 2007."

The Heflin plant has been part of Tyson Foods since 1986 and was processing 1 million birds per week before the fire. The damaged portion of the facility will be cleaned up, but the future of the property has not been determined.
