The scheduled opening of the new Seaboard Triumph Foods’ pork processing plant in Sioux City, Iowa is still six months away. But the company has already announced plans to expand the new facility and add a second shift.

Initial start-up of the plant is set for August. Construction on the expansion is slated to begin this spring with completion set for the summer of 2018.

The company says a second shift will allow the facility to process about six-million hogs a year. At full production, the plant will employ about 2,000 people including 200 salaried workers and 1,800 hourly production workers.
