Businessman To Revive Ladonia Plant

03-14-05 – After being closed for almost five years, a new owner is reviving a processing plant in Ladonia. Terrell businessman Jim Harris purchased the old Supreme Beef Plant from the city for $55,000.

He plans on turning the plant into an oil refinery and says the project will employ almost 200 people; good news for a city in need of an economic rebound.

145 jobs were lost when the plant closed back in September of 2000.
