Jack Link's Beef Jerky, whose quirky commercials show Jack Link's fans "messin' with sasquatch," announced the purchase of a packaged meat snack products manufacturing plant in Bellevue, Neb.

Jack Link's said the purchase of the plant, owned by Skylark Meats LLC, will allow it to increase production capacity to meet growing consumer demand. The Bellevue plant is a current co-packaging producer of some of Jack Link's meat snack products, and the company plans to retain management and employees at the Nebraska plant.

The transaction is expected to close by the end of October, subject to customary closing conditions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Jack Link's is based in Minong, Wis.
