Patrick Cudahy Announces Plans to Expand Milwaukee Plant
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/01/2015
Smithfield Foods says it is making plans to expand its Patrick Cudahy meatpacking facilities in Milwaukee.
The company says the project will cost about $12 million and includes rebuilding portions of the plant that were destroyed by fire nearly six years ago.
A groundbreaking ceremony is being planned for Thursday.
Officials say the 17,000-square-foot expansion will be used for slicing bacon products. Operations in the new facility should be up and running by the end of the year.
