Tri-State Beef Inc., a subsidiary of Dae Kyung Oil and Transportation Co., is opening a new beef slaughter, packaging and processing facility in Gallia County, Ohio. Tri-State Beef is opening the $30 million facility in the Dan Evans Industrial Park in Bidwell, Ohio.

“This is great news for our community,” Gallia County Commissioner Harold Montgomery told Michael Johnson for The Gallipolis Daily Tribune. “Tri-State Beef is a quality operation and we are ecstatic they have chosen Bidwell for their new U.S. operation. The establishment of this new facility will have a tremendous positive impact not only in Gallia County, but the entire southern Ohio region.”

The company plans to break ground on the facility sometime next year, company officials said. The facility is expected to bring 250 new jobs to the county.
