SEAFORD, Del. – To accommodate its recently expanded poultry processing plant in Harbeson, Delaware, Allen Harim has appointed several supervisors and managers to oversee the recently reopened facility, after completing a $30 million renovation to consolidate its processing operations.

Kevin Gordon is the plant manager of the expanded facility; Rory DeWeese is the senior director of live operations; Tim Thomas is the director of transportation and strategic sourcing.
