US - Keystone Foods has announced it will expand its operation in Gadsden, Alabama.

Based in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, Keystone Foods is expanding its operations by investing $118 million in a new facility and adding 150 new jobs, the Gadsden Times reports.

The company will relocate from its current 75,000-square-foot location in Gadsden to a new 184,000-square foot facility. All of its 520 employees will retain their jobs.

Additionally, Keystone will lease a portion of the new property to another company to build a storage and distribution facility that will service the new plant. The construction of the facility will add another 40 jobs, according to Keystone plant manager, Victor Turner.

The Gadsden plant processes primarily chicken and a small amount of beef for the restaurant industry.

Keystone Foods operates a total of 55 facilities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, and some of its customers include McDonald's, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut.
