Perdue to move agribusiness unit to Delaware

November 16, 2010|By Lorraine Mirabella, The Baltimore Sun

Perdue Inc. plans to move the headquarters of its agribusiness unit from Salisbury, where the poultry company is based, to Seaford, Del.

The company said Tuesday it will build a new office building for the growing Perdue AgriBusiness at a still-undetermined site in the Delaware town, replacing a 40-year-old facility on Zion Church Road in Salisbury.

The new Seaford location is expected to house about 150 executive and support personnel for the wholly-owned subsidiary that processes and exports agricultural products such as grain, feed and fertilizer. All other Perdue AgriBusiness operations will stay in their current locations, including a grain operation at the Zion Church Road complex.

The move does not affect Perdue's main corporate headquarters in Salisbury, which is currently undergoing a $12.8 million renovation, the company said.
