Kendall Packaging Corp. broke ground on a 56,000-square-foot expansion to its Jefferson, Wis. facility April 26. The expansion will double the plant’s production and storage capacity and create 36 to 48 new jobs. Project completion is scheduled for later this summer.
“This expansion reflects the steady growth and expanding capabilities we’ve seen over the years,” says Nate Friedl, director of manufacturing. “By doubling our capacity and increasing our production capabilities we will be able to better serve our customers and build upon our success in the packaging industry.”
The plant upgrade comes after the successful launch of Kendall’s natural cheese and pet food product lines, and installations of a 10-color W&H Miraflex press in Jefferson and a 10-color W&H Primaflex at its Pittsburg, Kan., facility. The expansion falls in line with Kendall’s commitment to invest in their facilities and equipment in order to improve efficiencies and work flows.
