Allen Harim moved into a new corporate headquarters building in Millsboro, Del., a project that broke ground December 2017.
The company, which will be celebrating 100 years of business next year, has been headquartered in Seaford, Del., since it was founded in 1919.
The new 18,900-square-foot headquarters is located in the former Vlasic pickle plant the company purchased in 2014. The renovation was completed by Delmarva Veteran Builders (DVB), Salisbury, Md.
“We’ve invested in Delaware through expansions at our feed mill, processing plant and broke ground last year on a new $22 million hatchery,” says Joe Moran, president and CEO. “This new corporate headquarters is just part of our investment here at our facility in Millsboro, with more to come. We are well positioned looking forward to our next 100 years on Delmarva.”
The new corporate headquarters employs about 50 people, including the executive team, accounting personnel and the sales team.
The 460,000-square foot-building also houses a consignment warehouse operation that stores boxes and other packaging materials from International Paper, Memphis, Tenn., and other vendors used in the Allen Harim production process.
The 50,000-square-foot deboning space will employ 165 people who will be deboning chicken for customers. All of the chicken will be processed in Harbeson, Del., and then brought to Millsboro, Del., by truck to the deboning plant.
