Kendall Packaging broke ground on a 56,000-square-foot expansion to its Jefferson, Wisconsin, USA, packaging facility on April 26.
The expansion will double the plant's production and storage capacity and create 36 to 48 new jobs. The project is scheduled to be completed in late-summer 2013.
"This expansion reflects the steady growth and expanding capabilities we've seen over the years," said director of manufacturing, Nate Friedl. "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."
