Keystone Meats announced plans to expand its Lima, Ohio, manufacturing headquarters facility. The addition will increase the brand’s current facility at 3585 Harding Highway by 40%, and allow the company to continue growing and innovating its recipe-ready protein solutions.

The expansion will allow the brand to hire new employees to operate and maintain new equipment, including positions in operation and maintenance, food processing equipment, HVAC and packaging.

“Our growth and our ability to expand in this way is thanks to the local community and the city of Lima and Allen County who has supported us for over 60 years,” says Pete Dorley, president and CEO. “This area serves as our best customer base, workforce, contractors and we appreciate that.”
