50+ jobs coming to Le Mars

LE MARS, Iowa (KTIV) -- A new pork processing company says it will locate its first-ever facility in Le Mars, Iowa.

KTIV first reported last month that North American Co-Pack, out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was looking at creating a $1.7 million processing facility in the city.

Wednesday, company CFO Bret Peterson confirms the plant will set up shop inside Nor-Am Cold Storage.

In its first year of operation, North American Co-Pack could bring 50 jobs to town, and up to 100 by the third year.

Peterson says the facility could be up and running by the end of the year.

He expects to make a formal announcement, and release further details in the coming days.
