GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - A well-known almond processing plant in Chico is relocating to Glenn County, the general manager says it's to expand their facility and bring more jobs.

Mayo Ryan is the general manager for "North State Hulling," a facility that has been on Miller Avenue in south Chico for 50 years.

It processes at least 20 million pounds of almonds each year. 

With harvesting season underway for almonds, Ryan says his company is already looking to the future with the construction of a new site on Highway 32 between Orland and Hamilton City.

The move is due to environmental issues at Miller Avenue such as housing and traffic in the area, according to Ryan. 

Ryan says the new site has the potential to process nearly 60 million pounds of almonds each year.

With a new location, means more jobs, Ryan added that the site will bring in 15 to 20 new jobs in the area. 

All of the employees currently employed with "North State Hulling" will keep their jobs and work in Glenn County when the site is up and ready on July 1, 2020, according to Ryan.

Ryan says there was lots of local competitive bidding for the new site which is more than 100 acres, compared to their old and current site on Miller Avenue, which is around 14 acres.

There's also plans to make it sustainable and help clean Stony Creek by removing toxic reeds.
