SALISBURY, MD. — Perdue Farms has completed a $25 million expansion project at its facility in Dillon, S.C. As part of the project, Perdue said it expanded its portioning and marinating operations, added a shipping cooler, installed an automated pallet storage system and built an office space to occupy more than 28,000 square feet.

“The expansion will help us meet the growing demand for no-antibiotics-ever chicken products and maintain the high level of customer service and reliability our customers in South Carolina and across the country expect from Perdue,” said Randy Day, chief executive officer of Perdue Farms. “We’re proud to add to the economic growth here in the Pee Dee region.”

Perdue Farms said it has created more than 1,200 jobs in the Pee Dee region since 1992. The company’s hatchery and live production office in Dillon provides support to more than 95 poultry farmers who supply Perdue Farms and more than 100 farmers who supply grains to the company.
