Kangaroo Brands, Inc., a Milwaukee, Wis.-based manufacturer of specialty breads and frozen handheld sandwiches, completed an expansion that will create 50 new jobs over the next 12 months.

 The construction includes a second sandwich room to house a third and fourth production line for its Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin line of frozen sandwiches. The refrigerated room increased Kangaroo's capacity by 25% and will house sandwich assembly and packaging, including robotics, conveying, slicing, wrapping and packaging equipment. The room is expected to be fully staffed and operational by the first week of September.
