Ben & Jerry’s, South Burlington, Vt., announced plans to expand its St. Albans, Vt., manufacturing plant.
The $14 million, 40,000-square-foot expansion project includes everything from a wastewater treatment plant to a new warehouse and packaging room.
“With the growth of the business comes the need for manufacturing expansion, to keep fans’ hands filled with pints of Ben & Jerry’s,” says Rob Bellezza, factory director. “Our fans love our product, they appreciate our values-led approach and so does our workforce. This is exciting for our business, and for our team here in St. Albans. We have a very passionate group that makes our ice cream, and this solidly anchors the St. Albans plant in our long-term manufacturing plan.”
The 20-year-old facility supports over 250 jobs.
PC Construction Co., South Burlington, Vt., will provide construction services for the project. The expansion is expected to be completed in November.
