PITTSBURG, TX-As part of its merger with JBS USA, Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. will close its corporate headquarters facility in this East Texas town, along with a satellite office in Atlanta.

The company will consolidate its executive operations at JBS USA’s headquarters in Greeley, Colo. The closure of the two offices includes the elimination of 158 positions at the headquarters facility, which was built just four years ago, as well as the elimination of 55 jobs in Atlanta. The company employs about 41,000 people and operates chicken processing plants and prepared-foods facilities in 12 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Mexico.

Currently, Pilgrim’s Pride occupies a five-story, 176,000-square-foot headquarters facility just outside the city limits along U.S. Highway 271 in Camp County. According to various reports, the building once housed 600 employees. The local tax appraisal district values the facility at $22.3 million. Additionally, Pilgrim’s Pride has an office building at 110 S. Texas St. in downtown that is valued at just over $2 million.
