Meyn America, LLC (Meyn America), a leading poultry processing solutions company, today announced plans to establish its first South Carolina operations with a distribution facility in Oconee County. The company’s $10.8 million investment will create 25 new jobs.
Meyn America, a subsidiary of Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V., is globally headquartered in the Netherlands. The company partners with renowned poultry processing companies in over 100 countries, providing poultry equipment and systems.
With North American headquarters in Ball Ground, Georgia, Meyn America will construct its new distribution operation at the Oconee Industry and Technology Park in Westminster, SC. The company is purchasing 36 acres to build an approximately 80,000-square-foot distribution center to house and distribute parts for poultry processing equipment for its North and South American customer base.
Currently, the company’s parts are shipped via air from distribution centers throughout Europe to Meyn America’s customers — resulting in high CO2 emissions. Meyn America’s new South Carolina facility will house a robust parts inventory that will be delivered to customers over land and sea — transportation modes proven to be less carbon intensive than air.
Operations are expected to be online in the third quarter of 2023. Individuals interested in joining the Meyn America team should visit the company’s careers page.
