Brakebush Brothers, Inc., Westfield, Wis., announced plans to build a chicken processing facility in Greenville, Texas.

The new 315,000-square-foot plant will employ over 500 people in the first three years with the potential for future growth.

“We are excited about what Greenville has to offer Brakebush Brothers,” says Carey Brakebush, vice president of facilities and transportation. “The pro-business environment, the strength of the labor force and the quality of the site on which we will build this state-of-the-art processing facility all contributed to our decision to choose Greenville. Brakebush looks forward [to] expanding its operations in Texas and building a partnership with Greenville and Hunt County for decades to come.”

Brakebush plans for the Westfield plant to be under construction later this year with the initial phase opening in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Brakebush also announced plans to add 79,000 square feet to its Westfield facility. This $42 million addition, scheduled to open in December, will add 120 new jobs.
