The new plant will create 175 jobs and is a $41 million investment in the state of Georgia.

Trident Seafoods is currently in the planning stages for development of its new, state-of-the-art seafood processing facility in Carrollton.

Trident plans to expand the facility by an additional 43,000 square feet.Completion of the project is expected in the fourth quarter of 2014. Hiring will take place in mid-2014.
