Bell and Evans breaks ground on new plant, announces another expansion

Bell & Evans, the third-largest employer in Lebanon County, broke ground today on a $44 million expansion project that will put a new 158,000-square-foot poultry processing and packaging plant on adjacent property it purchased.

The state provided $2.46 million in grants and tax credits to help fund the Bethel Township project.

The company employs about 1,145 full-time workers, and the expansion would add 380 jobs, according to the state, with room for future expansion.

Last week, the company purchased the site of the former Keystone Protein rendering plant on Route 22, said President and Chairman Scott Sechler. It will build another expansion that will employ between 1,200-2,000 people.
