    TF)--Tyson Foods is expanding its operation in Enid by reopening a former AdvancePierre facility that closed in 2017. Derek Burleson, external communications for Tyson Foods told Enid News and Eagle, "As part of the company's ongoing efforts to meet growing demand for its products and maximize efficiencies, the Tyson Foods facility on Pine Street in Enid is undergoing improvements." The Pine Street plant was closed in April 2017, a decision made prior Tyson Foods' acquisition of AdvancePierre. All production was then transferred to the facility on 54th Street. There were 41 workers at the plant prior to shutdown in 2017. Currently, Tyson employs 1,451 at its Enid facilities, Burleson said, and 3,500 throughout Oklahoma. According to Burleson, around 14 new full-time jobs will be created once the plant starts back up again, "with the potential to add more positions once the plant is at full production." Pine Street will be producing ingredients for Tyson's prepared foods business.
