Pelican Rapids' largest employer, West Central Turkeys, just completed its 120,000 square foot addition. While some of the new space is already in use, part of the area is waiting to be grown into.
"With the addition we have been able to streamline our operations, which in turn has made us more cost effective and more competitive in the marketplace," said Plant Manager Don Cole.
West Central utilized the JOBZ program and will benefit from some tax breaks. One of the contingencies of JOBZ is the plant had to guarantee at least 75 new jobs for a marked period of time.
