Walmart announced it will open its first-ever fully owned and operated case-ready beef processing and packaging facility in Olathe, Kansas. The opening of the new facility will further Walmart’s efforts to increase transparency and capacity in its supply chain and to deliver high quality products for its customers in the Midwest.

The $257 million facility is set to break ground later this year and will create more than 600 Walmart jobs in the Olathe community. 

McCownGordon, headquartered in Kansas City, is leading the design and construction of the new 330,000-sq.-ft. facility. The project will create more than 1,000 design, fabrication and construction jobs and is set for completion in 2025.
