Mequon-based Kendall Packaging Corp. will break ground on a 56,000-square-foot expansion to its plant in Jefferson on April 26.
The expansion will double the plant’s production and storage capacity. Project completion is scheduled for late summer.
“This expansion reflects the steady growth and expanding capabilities we’ve seen over the years,” said Kendall 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.”
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.
Kendall Packaging provides custom structures with high-impact printing to a variety of markets inside the food, pet food and personal care industries.
