Carl Buddig & Co. is planning to invest $3.7 million to lease and refurbish a 65,000 square foot warehouse in Munster, Indiana. The company will relocate its warehouse and distribution center from its South Holland processing plant to this new space, subsequently transferring 45 employees.
“Moving into the new Munster facility was an easy decision for the company,” said Dan Wynn, chief operating officer. “Finding a food grade facility within 10 miles from the plant was a major factor in the decision. Also, since the Dawn facility was partially refrigerated, the company was able to reduce the investment needed to refrigerate the entire facility.”
The deli meat producer is relocating to Munster because it needs more warehouse and dock space. According to Northwest Indiana Times, the company is adding new production lines at the South Holland facility, which will take up enough space that it has to shift its warehousing to another location.
By 2017, Buddig plans to add another 10 workers to its processing plant. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered the company up to $300,000 in tax breaks if it employs as many people as promised.
