Koch Foods Inc. is planning to build a $220 million expansion onto its existing poultry processing facility in Fairfield, Ohio.

The company will add approximately 402,000 square feet north of its current location, which is also expected to add at least 400 jobs within three years of completing the expansion, according to a document from the Fairfield City Council Meeting. Koch Foods plans to add two production lines along with other improvements as part of the renovation. The project is expected to start on Oct. 1 with completion slated for December 2022. The city is planning on doing $1.5 million in sanitary sewer improvements near the facility.
