TAMA, Iowa (AP) — Officials in the central Iowa town of Tama are optimistic that an idle beef processing plant will reopen soon and add hundreds of jobs.

The former Tama Pack facility is expected to reopen as Iowa Premium Beef sometime this year once remodeling is complete.

Tama Mayor Dan Zimmerman says he's optimistic about the company's prospects although the timing of the reopening remains uncertain.

Company officials and local economic development officials declined to discuss the project's timeline.

The plant is expected to employ 600 when it is fully operational. It will focus on custom processing and specialty brands.

Zimmerman says the plant will be a big boost to the economy.
