Cudahy-based Patrick Cudahy LLC plans to build a new bacon slicing and packaging plant at its headquarters.
The addition will total 16,500 square feet, and is expected to cost $12.1 million. Patrick Cudahy plans to install high-tech slicing and packaging equipment to improve upon its production and distribution process, the company said.
Retail, deli and foodservice production lines will be overhauled to improve efficiency, the company said.
“We are excited to be making such a large investment into the future of Patrick Cudahy,” said Bill Otis, president of Patrick Cudahy LLC. “Everything we do in the development of our production facility is to further the growth of our brand and this will be a huge step. Our goal is that the technology implemented in this new facility will benefit both our employees and the people who purchase Patrick Cudahy.”
Construction on the new facility is expected to begin this fall, with a grand opening planned for November 2015.
