Gorton’s Seafood Planning $89M Production Facility in Lebanon

LEBANON, Ind. – Gloucester, Massachusetts-based Gorton’s Seafood plans to build a 110,000-square-foot production facility in Lebanon, where it expects to employ 163 workers by 2029, Boone County and city officials announced Tuesday.

The frozen seafood producer’s $89.3 million facility will be located at 419 S. Mt. Zion Road next to the United States Cold Storage warehouse in Lebanon Business Park.

“Lebanon is proud to welcome Gorton’s to our city,” Mayor Matt Gentry said in written remarks. “This approval signifies the attractiveness of Lebanon as a business destination and also underlines the strength of Indiana’s place in the food manufacturing and agribusiness sectors.”

Gorton’s Director of Human Resources Chelsea Cote told members of the Lebanon City Council on Monday night that the company plans to break ground on the facility in March. She said the plant will feature three seafood-processing lines with the first beginning production in September 2025.
