Chicken of the Sea has selected Nationwide Boiler Inc. to supply the company’s new Lyons, Ga., canning plant with a 650 hp (22,500 lbs/hr) mobile boiler room for temporary steam. The new 200,000-square-foot facility will create 200 jobs around Toombs County and is expected to be fully operational by October 2009.
