Deli Brands of America (DBA), Baltimore, Md., opened a 22,000-square-foot slicing and logistics facility at a new location in Baltimore. DBA, the processing subsidiary of Saval Foods Corp., Elkridge, Md., will utilize the new facility to support its current operation that produces deli meats and family recipe entrées.
"We are excited to continue the growth of our company, which my grandfather started in 1932," says Jeff Saval, president.
The new location will be utilized for deli meat slicing functions, handle all outbound freight and logistics and will be in addition to the processing plant in Baltimore that produces a variety of deli products, including corned beef, pastrami, roast beef and the Honest to Goodness Natural Deli brand.
"After an extensive real estate search, it became apparent that 1705 Twin Springs Road met each important criteria for our growing needs, highlighted by its close proximity to our existing processing and distribution facilities," adds Saval. "As a producer of perishable products, it is critical to minimize travel times and create an efficient logistics center to transport product to our growing customer base throughout the Mid-Atlantic region as well as national accounts throughout the United States. The building location is also convenient to our existing employees, and provides us access to a highly-skilled base to recruit new workers in the future."
