Efforts continue to sell Windom's HyLife facility
A press release issued this week by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture states that work is ongoing to help HyLife to secure a new buyer for its pork production facility in Windom.
A Tuesday meeting included representatives from the city of Windom, staff from Minnesota’s congressional delegation, District 21 Sen. Bill Weber, District 21B Rep. Marj Fogelman, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Minnesota Housing Finance Agency and the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority.
The plant has nearly 1,000 employees, and the press release indicated that the prosperity of the Windom area and southwest Minnesota are a top priority. Following the meeting, Windom Mayor Dominic Jones spoke to a representative of the HyLife facility, and the company reiterated its position of actively working toward selling the facility and continuing to operate production for the immediate future.
