History

 

 

 


Postville was platted in 1853. It was named for Joel Post, a pioneer settler.

Postville was the boyhood home of 1946 Nobel laureate John R. Mott.

The population of Postville was predominantly German and Norwegian for much of its existence.

In 1987, a group of Hasidic Jews of the Lubavitch movement purchased a non-Kosher slaughterhouse refurbished it according to Jewish law, and named the facility Agriprocessors, which filed for bankruptcy on November 5, 2008 following a series of alleged violations of labor law and repeated accusations of mistreatment of cattle. The facility was raided by the federal government in 2008, resulting in hundreds of arrests and disruption to the community

Economy

 

 

 


Postville's growth during the last 15 years has been due to the presence of two large meat processing plants, Agriprocessors and Iowa Turkey Products. Agriprocessors, the kosher meat plant, is the largest of its type in the world, which as of February 2008 employed about 900 people and purchased $100 million worth of livestock annually. In May 2008, Agriprocessors was the target of a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid. Subsequently, a criminal complaint was filed against Agriprocessors and its principal for alleged violations of child labor laws.

Iowa Turkey Products, which burned in December 2003, was another major employer in the community. The plant has since rebuilt in MarshallMinnesota. Postville is also the home of a plastics factory, Norplex. The Norplex factory produces laminated plastics plate, sheet, and profile shapes and as of 2007 employs between 150 to 200 workers
