Owners of Charles City chicken plant hope to reopen

Posted:
CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

Three months from now, new owners of a Charles City chicken plant hope to be up and running.

The former Bushman family farms plant was purchased by two companies for a price tag of $2.3 million in an auction.  The companies are Charles Austin Ltd., and an associated but separate company, C-Go International Inc.

A company spokesman says there are plans to hire one-workers at the start and increase that number to 150 by the end of the year.  The plant's been closed since January.
