The company, a subsidiary of Japan-based Mitsubishi Corp., will invest $2.28 million to purchase, renovate and equip a 56,000-square-foot facility on a 5.9-acre campus. The new facility, which will be operational in August, will allow Indiana Packers to conduct fresh pork shipping and warehouse receiving operations.

“We are excited about the opportunities here in the Frankfort community,” says Russ Yearwood, president. “The location and strong workforce complements our economic growth plan. Selecting Frankfort for our facility was made possible due to the partnership between Indiana Packers, the state of Indiana, Clinton County and Frankfort officials. We look forward to a great partnership for many years to come.”
