170+ Poultry Jobs Coming to Arkadelphia

Vikon Farm, a poultry processing company, today announced plans to locate a new processing facility in Arkadelphia, which will employ more than 172 people within four years. Vikon will invest $5.4 million in the facility, formerly home to Petit Jean Poultry. In addition to the jobs created directly by the new processing facility, Vikon will also contract with a significant number of growers from El Dorado and Union County along with a Vikon supported hatchery in Prescott. Vikon produces a specialty breed of chicken that serves numerous Asian markets.

"We are excited to be here,” said Quan Phu, President and CEO of Vikon Farm. “We appreciate the extensive amount of support from the Arkadelphia Economic Development Alliance and Arkansas Economic Development Commission. Our expansion to Arkansas could not have been done without the unwavering assistance of the Arkadelphia, El Dorado, and Prescott communities.”

Vikon Farm raises chickens that are free-range and naturally grown. The poultry maintains an all grain diet with no hormones or antibiotics added.

“Vikon Farm is doing more than bringing jobs to Arkadelphia; they’re building agricultural partnerships with growers in our region,” Governor Mike Beebe said. “I know they will be satisfied with the dedicated workforce they will find in Arkadelphia and Clark County as they establish their Arkansas operation.”

Vikon Farm will be the first company to locate in Arkadelphia and Clark County since the passage of the community’s Economic Development Tax.

“This is the type of announcement that shows exactly how working together can pay off,” said Shawnie Carrier, President and CEO of the Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance. “Vikon Farm will be a name all of Southwest Arkansas can be proud of. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Quan Phu and his team as he makes this project a reality. He expressed the attention to detail and welcoming nature of Clark County and Arkansas helped make the decision to move his California business here. We are so glad he did.”

Those interested in employment opportunities with Vikon Farm can call 870-246-1460.

From www.VikonFarm.com:

We here at Vikon Farm understand that a great tasting chicken needs to be slowly grown without hormones added and given space to roam and grow. Our chickens are all free-ranged, all naturally grown birds that are fed an all-grain diet with no hormones and no antibiotics added. Every chicken is inspected by the USDA and is certified for it's quality.
