Ohio-based egg company Weaver Brothers is expanding, with the company acquiring a new warehouse in Russia, Ohio.
According to a report in the Dayton Daily News, the company acquired the 89,650-foot facility will allow the company to utilize more warehouse space to store its equipment and packaging supplies, as well as improve its biosecurity efforts.
Tim Weaver, president of Weaver Eggs, stated: “Our company is actively increasing our biosecurity systems and minimizing the risks as it relates to the avian influenza. Purchasing this facility went hand-in-hand with our efforts. This acquisition will also help in continuing our job preservation as well.”
Headquartered in Versailles, Ohio, Weaver Brothers, according to the WATTAgNet Top Poultry Companies Database, is a third-generation family farm operation that offers cage-free and organic eggs. The company’s egg operation includes 7.5 million hens.
The company, along with another Ohio company, Cooper Farms, in December, 2014 created a joint venture company through a 50-50 purchase of the Perham Egg facility in Fort Recovery, Ohio. The Perham Egg facility had opened just several months earlier. The new company, known as CW Egg Products, produces liquid egg products.
