Darke County egg producer to expand

A large Darke County-based egg producer is expanding its operation into a new warehouse in Russia.

Weaver Brothers has acquired an 89,650 -square-foot facility in the Shelby County village at 101 N. Liberty St.

The company, which operates Weaver Eggs, plans to continue its operations in Versailles.

Located at 895 E. Main St. in Versailles, Weaver Brothers has been a family-owned and operated business since 1929. The company is a fully-integrated and feature grain production, a feed mill, and egg production and processing.

The recent acquisition of the former Clopay facility will allow the company to utilize more warehouse space to store equipment and packaging supplies, company officials said.

“Our company is actively increasing our bio security systems and minimizing the risks as it relates to the Avian Influenza (Bird Flu). Purchasing this facility went hand and hand with our efforts,” Tim Weaver, president of Weaver Eggs, said in a release. “This acquisition will also help in continuing our job preservation as well.”
