The J.R. Simplot Co. plans to build what it describes as a state-of-the-art potato processing plant near Caldwell, Idaho.
The Boise, Idaho-based company expects to have the facility completed by spring 2014, according to a news release.
The 380,000-square-foot plant will be built on the site of the company's original plant in Caldwell and will replace the firm's current Caldwell plant.
Caldwell production includes shredded hashbrowns, and regular-cut, shoestring and thin-cut french fries.
Other anticipated Idaho closures include Aberdeen, which produces batter-coated french fries, and Nampa, which turns out hashbrowns, batter-coated and traditional french fries, wedges, tater "gems" and Infinity fries that have 0 grams of trans fat.
These closures won't occur until the new plant is online.
The new plant is expected to have the same output as three older plants.
