On Sept. 18, 2019, J&B Group announced that the Pipestone facility would be sold and production relocated to its St. Michael facility.

JBS USA announced an agreement with J&B Group to lease J&B’s value-added meat processing facility in Pipestone with the intent to acquire this facility in the upcoming months for an undisclosed amount. The facility was destined for imminent closure.

The pending acquisition means the facility will join JBS USA, protecting more than 130 jobs and ensuring the facility remains a significant economic contributor to the Pipestone community for years to come.

On Sept. 18, 2019, J&B Group announced that the Pipestone facility would be sold and production relocated to its St. Michael facility. Before JBS USA’s plan to purchase, J&B had not identified a buyer and the facility was scheduled for closure in this month.
