Tyson Foods To Create 400 Jobs At Illinois Plant


Last updated on January 13th, 2023 at 05:34 pm

Tyson Foods has expanded its workforce projections for its prepared foods facility in Caseyville, Illinois. This will create about 400 new employee positions to meet the growing demand for Hillshire Farm and Jimmy Dean grab-and-go snacking and breakfast items.

This boost is a result of the $180 million expansion in development. Seven production lines and 270,000 square feet will be added to the Caseyville facility to increase automated warehousing and robotics.

“Since our facility’s operations began in 2005, Tyson Foods has become a pillar of our community, contributing to our city’s economic growth and giving back to the residents of Caseyville through community outreach,” said Christopher Rogers, Caseyville plant manager.

“This expansion will allow us to welcome hundreds of new team members to Tyson Foods, while being better equipped to serve the community we call home.”

The facility expansion broke ground in August and is expected to be complete in late 2024.

The Caseyville facility plans to hire for positions across the maintenance, Food Safety Quality Assurance, warehousing, production and management departments. About 250 of these team members are expected to start work across four new production lines by September, while 150 are expected to begin work across three new production lines by the project’s completion.

The Caseyville facility employs more than 300 team members and paid more than $16 million in wages during its 2021 fiscal year. The expansion project will bring the total team member count to 750 by September 2024, building on the large economic impact generated across the four Tyson Foods plants in Illinois.
