Tyson Foods expands Camilla plant, adds 100 jobs

Tyson Foods has completed a 35,000-square-foot expansion of its existing facility in Camilla, creating 100 new jobs with an investment of $34.2 million, according to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

“Georgia’s existing industries are a vital component for job growth in every corner of the state,” said Governor Kemp. “We are grateful that Tyson Foods is continuing their investment in the State of Georgia and excited for the new opportunities that this expansion will create for Mitchell County and the region.”

Construction recently wrapped up on the expansion, and the construction of a new “mega line” has prompted the company to hire an additional 100 workers as it ramps up operations in Southwest Georgia.
