Pinnacle Foods Inc., Parsippany N.J., opened the doors to its new 164,000-square-foot warehouse in Fayetteville, Ark.

The Fayetteville plant is the company’s frozen meal hub, producing EVOL, Hungry-Man and Swanson brand products.

“As one of the largest employers in Fayetteville, we’re proud to add nearly 30 more jobs at our facility,” says Gabriel Ochoa, plant manager.

“The location of the warehouse by the plant eliminates additional handling and transportation costs to move finished goods to off-site locations,” says Chad Whyte, vice president, logistics and warehousing. “This will eliminate more than 130,000 miles of tractor-trailer traffic from Interstate 49.”
