Bob Evans Farms, Inc. announced this week that the Bidwell sausage plant facility, located at 363 Green Valley Drive, is scheduled for closure in late summer 2013, leaving 56 local jobs in the balance. The move is part of an overall business strategy that also includes a new, consolidated transportation hub in Springfield, Ohio, that will eliminate the need for the Gallia County hub located on Ohio 850. Approximately 90 Gallia-based employees will be shifted to a Springfield home base beginning this fall. Bob Evans officials have say they are committed to helping each affected employee find new employment within the company. The Bidwell facility has been in operation since 1955.
