Next step for Illinois pork plant construction
Triumph Foods can move forward in building a $114 million pig processing
plant in East Moline, Illinois, US.
The East Moline City Council has approved $20 million in tax increment
financing (TIF) assistance.
The plant will eventually employ 1,000
people and process approximately 15,000 pigs per
The plans for the project
were already announced in late 2005 and the company intends to begin
construction this summer.
The municipal assistance will be used to
expand sewage treatment facilities, extend water and sewer lines to the site and
give the company money to do on-site improvements.
