MEQUON, WI | Kendall Packaging Corp. recently broke ground on a 56,000-sq-ft expansion to its Jefferson, WI, facility. The addition will increase the plant’s production capacity and double the storage capacity. Project completion is scheduled for late summer 2013. Kendall provides custom structures with high-impact printing to a variety of markets in the food, pet food, and personal care industries.
“This expansion reflects the steady growth and expanding capabilities we’ve seen over the years,” says 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 ten-color Windmoeller & Hoelscher (W&H) Miraflex in Jefferson and a ten-color W&H Primaflex at its Pittsburg, KS, facility.
The company says the expansion falls in line with its commitment to invest in facilities and equipment in order to improve efficiencies and workflows.
