The opening of a new headquarters marks the next era of growth for Emmi Roth. The cheesemaker announced its opening of the new 158,000-square-foot building in Stoughton, Wisconsin. The facility also houses Emmi Roth’s new state-of-the-art conversion facility, which will cup, bag, wedge, shred, and crumble the company’s cheese products for a variety of leading brands.

Tim Omer, President, Emmi Roth“After several years of planning and construction, we are happy to finally be up and running at our new home in Stoughton,” said Tim Omer, President. “Our team has worked tirelessly over the past two years to make this dream a reality, which will significantly impact our business and our ability to better serve our customers.”

Following its acquisition of Athenos in 2021, Emmi Roth recognized the need for more conversion and distribution capabilities.

The new facility enables Emmi Roth to control more of its supply chain and improves the United States cheese industry’s overall conversion landscape, according to a press release.

Jordan Ehlen, Director of Manufacturing, Emmi Roth“With conversion now within our supply chain the new facility will drive for growth opportunities to our great portfolio of cheeses, strengthen our value add to customers, and increase our ability to service customers,” said Jordan Ehlen, Director of Manufacturing.

The new headquarters has also become the single biggest sustainability project in Emmi Roth’s history, allowing for a substantial reduction in the amount of fuel and emissions spent transporting cheeses. The facility is also all-electric, with no natural gas or propane service.

The facility is centrally located between cheese plants in Wisconsin and will allow teams from different areas of the business to collaborate under one roof. By February, as many as 175 people will be working at the facility built in the robust farming community just outside of Madison.

“The startup of the new facility is in full swing,” said Ehlen. “Our team is really engaged and has taken on the challenges of the new facility with great pride and perseverance.”

We look forward to seeing these new capabilities in action!
