Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

September 5, 2018 - Perdue Foods has officially opened its new Southeast Distribution Center in Rincon. The new facility supports growing the Company’s No-Antibiotics-Ever (NAE) and organic poultry products and will create new jobs.

The Perdue Southeast Distribution Center receives fresh packaged chicken products from Perdue plants which are weighed, priced and labeled, and shipped to customers.

The company has invested $5 million, and added 100 new jobs in the new facility as part of a lease partnership with Lineage Logistics, one of the world’s largest temperature-controlled supply chain and logistics providers. Lineage has also made a significant investment in facility and equipment improvements, and will add 55 new warehouse jobs to support the project.

“Investments in the Southeast Distribution Center will enable us to meet the growing demand for no-antibiotics-ever and organic chicken and help us maintain the high level of customer service and reliability that customers expect from Perdue,” said Mark McKay, president of Perdue Premium Poultry and Meats.

“Lineage has been a warehouse services provider to Perdue for more than two decades, and their investments in updated technology will help us better serve our Southeast customers,” said McKay.

“We are honored Perdue chose Lineage as its warehouse partner for the weigh-price-label program,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, president and CEO of Lineage Logistics. “Our decades-long partnership is indicative of our ongoing commitment to Perdue and its customers, and we look forward to supporting their operations in Rincon and beyond for many years to come.”

“We appreciate Perdue Foods’ powerful vote of confidence in Effingham County,” said Brandt Herndon, CEO of Effingham Industrial Development Authority. “This is not just a celebration for the local economy but for the State of Georgia, also. We look forward to the growth of this partnership for years to come.”

The PERDUE® brand is the number-one brand of fresh chicken in the U.S., with a full lineup of no-antibiotics-ever products selling under the PERDUE®, PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® and PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® brands, and USDA certified organic chicken the PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® Organic and PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® organic brands.
