Tyson says the move will foster closer collaboration, enhance team member agility and enable faster decision making, positioning Tyson to win with its employees customers, and consumers. Team members will begin the phased relocation in early 2023. Some of Tyson’s hide business functions are based out of its Dakota Dunes location and the company has not indicated if these operations would be specifically impacted by the announcement. 

“Tyson’s diverse portfolio of products (which includes hides and semi-processed leather) and brands provides us with an unmatched strategic advantage to serve our customers,” said Donnie King, President & CEO, Tyson Foods. “Bringing our talented corporate team members and businesses together under one roof unlocks greater opportunities to share perspectives and ideas, while also enabling us to act quickly to solve problems and provide the innovative products solutions that our customers deserve and value.”

Tyson is also announcing the expansion of Tyson’s world headquarters in Springdale, which will include indoor and outdoor spaces designed to foster collaboration, connection and creativity. It will also include a number of features to enrich Tyson Foods employee work experience by accelerating change and innovation through diverse and dynamic spaces.

More details on this multi-year campus development, which will include the remodel of some existing facilities, will be announced by the company over the coming months.
