Hubbard LLC opens its first GP facility in Alabama
USA - Early March 2015 Hubbard LLC hosted an open house located at a new production complex which is its first in the isolated region of North East Alabama. The Open House initiative exposed Hubbard to the community, the state and to solicited perspective growers for Hubbard's future production requirements. Hubbard was very pleased to welcome Deputy Commissioner Reese H. McKinnney, JR to the event (see picture on the right). Also in attendance was a nice representation from the Alabama Poultry Federation located in Montgomery, Alabama.
The event was well attended by community leaders, Hubbard's poultry vendor partners, state representatives and many interested individuals from the state of Alabama. Hubbard's Production and Technical Teams were on hand to tour and explain their facilities first hand as well as to educate the attendees on Hubbard's initiatives in the "Less Feed, More Meat" campaign. Activities included vendor information centres, poultry house tours, information on the importance of bio-security and Hubbard LLC farm contract explanations. A catered "chicken" tender lunch was provided and enjoyed by all!
Hubbard expresses a special thank you to the farm owners, the Shiflett Family (see picture on the left), for their participation and willingness to share their experiences. Mark Barnes (CEO of Hubbard LLC) was present together with Sean Holcombe (Director of Technical Services & Sales), Joshua Cox (Hubbard LLC Technical Service manager) and his team. Hubbard also thanks its vendor partners for their participation and support and to the Hubbard Production Staff: David Garrison (Breeder Manager for Tennessee & Alabama), Leslie Eggleston (Breeder Supervisor for Tennessee), Jeff Moore (Pullet Supervisor for Tennessee) and Melinda Morgan and Kim Lawrence (both Production Administration Assistants).
"Hubbard LLC is very proud to be an integral part of the state of Alabama by starting up our production in this region", said Mark Harmon (Hubbard LLC Production Director). "The state and local Jackson county officials have been very accommodating in the whole process. We are looking forward to additional placements in 2015 as we increase our housing with the current and future demands of Hubbard breeding stock both internally and externally", continued Mark Harmon.
A very successful event that will propel Hubbard LLC's future expansion!
