Progress Continues on the Perdue AgriBusiness Soybean Processing Facility in Lancaster, PA
October 21, 2016 — Foundations are being poured as work continues on Perdue AgriBusiness’ new soybean processing facility being built on a 65-acre parcel in Lancaster County, PA.
Work planned involves extensive sitework and the construction of one of the nation’s most advanced soybean processing facilities.
The plant will process upwards of 17.5 million bushels per year and feature a grain elevator designed to function as a stand-alone facility providing a centralized grain transportation and storage hub for surrounding soybean farmers.
The project’s completion is slated for September 2017—in time for operating during that year’s harvest.
The new site is estimated to generate more than 150 construction jobs, 35 long-term jobs on completion and an anticipated 500 additional jobs in crop production and transportation.
