Emmi Roth USA, a Monroe, Wis.-based subsidiary of Switzerland based Emmi Group, announced plans to expand its Penn Yan and Orangeburg, N.Y., operations, creating 50 new positions in Penn Yan along. Emmi Penn Yan will purchase production equipment, as well as expand its existing structure. 

“Emmi Roth USA is very appreciative of the support by Governor [Andrew] Cuomo and Empire State Development,” says Matthias Kunz, chairman of the board, Emmi Roth USA. “When we established our operations, we certainly had choices, and making our choice to locate in Penn Yan has turned out to be a very positive one. With the great workforce, access to quality dairy products as well as access to our markets, we are very happy to be in Yates County, New York.”

Emmi Penn Yan’s manufacturing facility produces Siggi’s brand yogurt, as well as bag-in-box milk and creamers for foodservice dispensers. It is also currently at capacity. The company’s $11.6 multi-year investment project includes hiring new talents in dairy production.
