SACO — Ready Seafood has nabbed the last local permit it needs to build a $10 million lobster processing, storage and research center in Saco.

On Monday, the city’s planning board unanimously approved Ready’s plan to build a 64,000-square-foot facility on a 40-acre lot at 1016 Route 1. When building is done in 12 to 14 months, Ready Seafood will be the largest of Maine’s half-dozen lobster processors, capable of processing 100,000 pounds of Maine’s signature crustacean every day.

Ready plans to hire 40 to 50 new people to staff the new operation, bringing its total payroll to about 250 mostly full-time jobs.
