DANDRIDGE, TN-Bush Brothers & Co. of Knoxville, TN has started a $100 million, 240,000-sf expansion to its baked bean plant in Dandridge, TN. When completed in late 2003, the complex is expected to employ a total 270 workers, according to Industrial Information Resources Inc. of Houston.

Lockwood Greene Engineers Inc. of Spartanburg, SC is the general contractor. The new structure will replace several older buildings on the site.

The expansion will increase plant capacity through the addition of new production equipment, canning and packaging equipment and increased warehouse and shipping areas, according to the Texas research firm that daily monitors development plans of national manufacturing companies.
