Gov. Kay Ivey announced that Coastal Growers plans to build a peanut-shelling plant in Atmore, bringing 100 or more jobs to the area and turning the Escambia County city into a hub for peanut shelling in southwest Alabama.

The company – owned by a cooperative of farmers, mostly in Alabama – will build an $87 million shelling and storage facility on more than 60 acres in the Atmore Industrial Park.

“The Coastal Growers facility in Atmore will become a vital resource for peanut farmers in Alabama and beyond by helping to make their operations more sustainable and profitable,” Ivey said. “I look forward to seeing the impact that this project is going to have for our farmers and for the region.”
