PLYMOUTH — Less than two years after a major addition and renovation, Sargento Foods announced an expansion of their Kiel facility.
The construction project will add 41,500-square-feet of production and warehousing space to the existing facility. In addition to the new space, 7,000-square-feet will be remodeled. The construction will begin in early April and will wrap up by the end of 2018.
“We are proud to once again be growing in Kiel. This project willsupport our commitment to producingsafe, quality and legal products for our customers and consumers,” said Louie Gentine, CEO and third generation owner of Sargento. “We keep every family in mind when making our products,including every member of the Sargento Family–our employees.”
Sargento has incrementally added staff to the Kiel facility to begin training for increased production and will likely add 25-40 employees as the construction proceeds. C.D. Smith Construction based in Fond du Lac has been selected as the general contractor for this project.
In addition to Kiel, Sargento Foods operates facilities in Plymouth, Elkhart Lake and Hilbert.
