Pilgrims Pride Strips Equipment Ahead of Move from Boaz

Speaking of poultry one of the biggest economic stories of 2014 was the decision of Pilgrim’s Pride to close its factory in Boaz. 300 jobs will move to the Guntersville facility and 75 to Russellville, and now Boaz officials are actively looking for a new tenant of the large building being vacated by Pilgrim’s Pride. The company says it is stripping equipment from the building and preparing it to be sold.
