CA-PEQ Board Meets in Nashville, Approves Construction Funding

The Central American Poultry Export Group (CAPEQ), meeting this week in Nashville, approved USAPEEC’s funding request of $2.4 million for construction of its new office building in partnership with the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association.

Under the project, U.S. Poultry’s current offices in Tucker, Ga. will be doubled in size, allowing USAPEEC to share the facilities. USAPEEC currently occupies office space in nearby Stone Mountain, Ga.

A construction company has been selected based on bids, and groundbreaking is anticipated this month with completion by December.
