New Mexico Wins – Largest Jobs Announcement in Over a Decade

Congratulations to Tim Nitti and the Partnership Team on Stampede Meat’s decision to expand in Sunland Park, creating up to 1,295 new jobs.

Headquartered in Bridgeview, Illinois, Stampede Meat processes and distributes portioned, marinated and cooked beef, chicken, and other protein products for restaurants, retail, home delivery and other channels.

The company will invest more than $36 million on infrastructure and the renovation of the 285,000 SF former Tyson plant. The renovated plant will feature proprietary 360-degree searing and sous vide cook capabilities. The State will invest up to $3 million in Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) funds in the expansion. New Mexico competed against Texas, Oklahoma and Iowa for the project. This is the company’s first location outside Illinois.

One of Stampede’s keys to success is its Butcher Certification Program, which encompasses a combination of lecture and hands-on work to help employees develop a rich understanding of meat fundamentals and cutting techniques. The company anticipates beginning the hiring process in September and the facility should be operational in October. If you are interested in joining the Stampede Team follow this link.
