Just 14 months after the production startup of its Hilbert, Wis., facility, Sargento Foods Inc., Plymouth, Wis., announced a groundbreaking on a 40,000-square-foot addition, which will add production space to the existing 70,000-square-foot building. 

“Thanks to continued strong consumer demand for our cheese products, we are continuing to grow,” says Louie Gentine, chief executive officer. “When the addition is completed in the late summer of 2018, we expect to add approximately 150 employees to the Sargento Family.”

The Boldt Co., Appleton, Wis., was selected as general contractor for the construction project.
