American food company Hormel Foods announced Tuesday that it has opened its new Papillion Foods dry sausage products manufacturing plant in Papillion, NE.
“We are excited to be opening up this facility to not only help meet the demand for our branded sausage product, but also provide fantastic career opportunities in the community,” Ed Finnegan, plant manager of the Papillion Foods site, said in a company release. “We’ve been able to hire a great team thus far and are looking to welcome even more to our family at Papillion Foods.”
Hormel renovated a 535,000-sq-ft building into a new food processing plant. During the project, the company installed some sustainability features, like LED lighting with motion sensors, automated guided vehicles, and automatic rack assists for lifting objects.
350 workers will be hired at the Papillion plant during its first year of operation.
Earlier this month, Powder & Bulk Solids reported that Hormel completed an expansion project at its Burke Corporation plant in Nevada, IA.
