Weitz to Receive Eagle Award of Excellence for Ozark Mountain Poultry Project

The Weitz Company will be presented an Eagle Award of Excellence by the Minnesota Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) for its help constructing the Ozark Mountain Poultry feed mill facility in Batesville, Ark.

The Minnesota ABC will honor Weitz with the first place award at its Awards of Excellence Banquet in Bloomington, Minn., on January 26, 2017. By winning the state award, Weitz has qualified to participate in ABC’s national competition that will present awards in March 2017.
