ATTALLA, Alabama — Representatives of Koch Foods joined state and local leaders in Etowah County on Thursday to formally open the company’s state-of-the-art grain storage and distribution facility in Attalla.
Koch Foods (pronounced “Cook”) said the new poultry feed-mill will create 32 new jobs with an annual payroll of $1 million. The company invested more than $60 million in the project.
The Attalla facility, served by rail and designed with technologically advanced features for maximum efficiency, will support the company’s expanded processing plant in nearby Gadsden.
Koch officials joined Governor Kay Ivey to cut the ribbon during an opening ceremony for the 130-acre facility, which can hold more than 1 billion bushels of corn.
