Carroll County is soon to be home to Trident Seafoods, the largest vertically integrated seafood harvesting and processing company in North America, announced Governor Nathan Deal in a recent press release. The new plant will create 175 jobs and is a $41 million investment in the state of Georgia.
“Georgia is the logical place for Trident Seafoods to expand its East Coast operations,” said Deal. “From our highway system that allows trucks to reach 80 percent of the U.S. market in two days to our highly trained workforce, the state offers a wealth of resources to help Trident reach its business goals.”
The Carroll County processing facility will be located in a 104,000-square-foot building that formerly housed a food production facility for Chiquita. Trident plans to expand the facility by an additional 43,000 square feet. Completion of the project is expected in the fourth quarter of 2014. Hiring will take place in mid-2014.
