Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy announced plans to expand its Brattleboro, Vt., headquarters and dairy processing facility in 2017. The $2 million expansion will include a new headquarters to support the company’s U.S. operations, and is expected to add as many as 50 new jobs in production, management and administration. The company will also make facility and equipment upgrades enabling it to process more milk and strained Greek yogurt, including the Green Mountain Creamery brand.
“Our company was started just six years ago in Brattleboro, yet today we have two plants and a national footprint. We’re excited to receive this support from the state and town, which enables not only another expansion to our plant, but [also] centralizes all administrative functions right here where it all began,” says Tom Moffitt, president and CEO.
“We have experienced tremendous growth in the USA, and really appreciate the Governor’s leadership and the leadership at the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development and the Town of Brattleboro in making this project and expansion a success,” adds Christian Ehrmann, chairman.
