West Liberty Foods is about to launch another major expansion at its Tremonton plant.

The company, whose headquarters are in West Liberty, Iowa, said it is planning to add more than 34,000 square feet of manufacturing and storage space to its Utah facility. The expansion is expected to be completed in August 2013.

The expansion will be the third addition to the facility since it opened in 2007.

Ed Garrett, president and CEO for West Liberty Foods, said in a statement announcing the expansion that the company needed the additional space because of increasing sales volume. He said the addition will bring an estimated 10 million pounds of additional manufacturing capabilities to the Tremonton facility.

"The expansion of the Tremonton, Utah facility is part of our company's continued success, and the additional space will serve to benefit our customers," he said in the statement.

West Liberty Foods is a co-packer and private label manufacturer of sliced deli meats and other fully-cooked products.

The Tremonton plant employs 530 Utahns.
