KANSAS CITY, MO. August 30, 2016 — National Beef Packing Company, LLC (National Beef) announced today that it will expand boxed beef storage and shipping capabilities at its facility in Liberal, Kansas. The news follows an announcement in July that National Beef is undertaking a similar expansion at its Dodge City, Kansas plant.

“Customers increasingly are requesting smaller and lighter boxes,” said Dennis Boyles, vice president and general manager, National Beef. “This capital project will position us to more efficiently deliver the products customers want, when they want them.”

The $8 million dollar project includes the addition of a palletizer, crane, sorters and new shipping lanes. The expanded capabilities are scheduled to come online in late spring 2017.
