Townsend's Inc. announced the sale of its Millsboro complex including its poultry processing, hatchery, feed mill and soybean processing assets to Mountaire Farms of Delaware Inc.

Mountaire Farms of Delaware Inc., a Mountaire Corporation company, maintains a poultry processing operation in Selbyville. Headquartered in North Little Rock, Arkansas, Mountaire Corporation also operates a commercial feed business in North Little Rock and another poultry operation in Lumber Bridge, North Carolina.

Mountaire officials said the Millsboro complex will be managed as a separate company distinct from the rest of Mountaire.

"We are pleased that this sale is being made to a professionally managed organization that shares Townsend's sense of integrity, business conduct and practices and belief in taking care of its people," said Ove Sorensen, Townsend's president and chief executive officer.

Townsend's will maintain administrative and support offices in Wilmington and Sussex County and continue aggressive growth plans in its Batesville, Arkansas, Siler City, North Carolina, and Pittsboro, North Carolina plants.

Mountaire is a privately held company that has been owned and operated by the Cameron family since 1914. Ronald M. Cameron is the current president and chairman of the board.
