National Beef to Expand Dodge City Facility

KSCB News - July 27, 2016 1:59 pm

 National Beef Packing Company, LLC (National Beef) announced today that it is starting a project to increase its capacity to handle and ship boxed beef products at its Dodge City, Kansas facility.

 “Our customers increasingly require smaller box sizes and weights. This expansion will allow us to deliver on this expanding need, and to do so more efficiently,” said Kris Ragan, vice president and general manager, National Beef.

The over $30 million dollar project includes the addition of new box carousels, palletizers and cranes and will increase material handling and box storage space at the facility.

“Our company is committed to investing in projects that help us better serve customer needs for our high-quality beef products,” Regan said.

National Beef Dodge City employs approximately 2,900 employees and is one of the highest volume beef processing facilities in the country. The expansion is scheduled to be completed by December 2017.
