Earlier this year a Georgia based poultry company purchased all the assets of the Marshall Durbin Poultry Company.
The purchase included the Marshall Durbin chicken processing plant on James St. in Hattiesburg and the plant on Marshall Durbin drive in Waynesboro. Mar Jac Poultry of Gainesville Georgia is the buyer it has assumed the operations of both plants. A Mar Jac spokesperson said Marshall Durbin employees were given the option to apply to Mar Jac and most were hired.
