Brakebush Brothers will build a new 315,000 square foot poultry further processing plant in Greenville, Texas.
This new facility is expected to create over 800 jobs in Greenville’s Park West industrial park and will be the second Texas location for Brakebush Brothers.
A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant offer of $780,000 has been extended to Brakebush.
“After a multi-state search, we are excited about what Texas and Greenville has to offer Brakebush Brothers,” said Carey Brakebush, Brakebush Brothers vice president of facilities and transportation. “The pro-business environment, the strength of the labor force and the quality of the site on which we will build this state-of-the-art processing facility all contributed to our decision to choose Greenville. Brakebush looks forward to expanding its operations in Texas and building a partnership with Greenville and Hunt County for decades to come.”
“The Texas economy continues to drive business growth, creating opportunities that make the Lone Star State a premier location for job seekers and creators alike,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a press release. “Brakebush Brothers’ expansion is a welcome addition to their already tremendous success, which further adds to the advancement of our workforce. I am confident Texas’ business-friendly environment will continue to attract companies like Brakebush Brothers, and I look forward to their continued growth in the state.”
The company’s decision to build a new facility in Greenville was also hailed by Greenville Mayor David Dreiling, Hunt County Judge John Horn and Greenville Board of Development Chairman Randy Tarpley.
“Brakebush's new state of the art manufacturing facility will offer many benefits for stable new jobs for Hunt County with a tremendous economic impact for our county residents and our county resources. Brakebush is a big leader in their industry and we are very proud to welcome them to Hunt County, Texas,” said Horn.
Brakebush Brothers is a family owned business, which has been in operation for 92 years as a processor of chicken products.
