Cargill Meat Solutions Plans to Cut Jobs in Columbus, Nebraska; to Convert Columbus Facility to Cooked Meats Production Facility
Nov 6 15
Almost 80 Cargill Meat Solutions employees in Columbus, Nebraska, will lose their jobs for good when the company temporarily shuts down its ground beef products plant there to convert it to a cooked meats production facility in December 2015. Cargill estimated that 79 employees will be affected by the planned December 4 closure; their employment will end December 29, 2015. The company on September 24, 2015 announced its plans for a $111 million project to convert the Columbus facility from one that produces ground beef to one that makes cooked meats instead. At that time, Cargill acknowledged the conversion would result in about 80 layoffs among the 250-employee Columbus workforce. The plant is expected to resume production in mid-2016, with ground beef production being shifted to existing plants in Wisconsin and Texas. The new facility will be fully operational in 2017, at which point it will again have 250 employees.
