Continental Mills Buys 175,000-Sq-Ft Plant in Illinois

Snacks, baking mixes, and breakfast products manufacturer Continental Mills Inc. is poised to expand its production capacity with the acquisition of a 175,000-sq-ft production plant in Effingham, IL from Hodgson Mill, the company announced in a recent release. 

Located next to an existing Continental Mills facility in Effingham, the new site will be renovated and become operational in 2021. 

“This is an exciting time for Continental Mills and our employees as we expand our operation with a second facility in Effingham that provides a blank canvas for us to customize and meet customer needs in the years to come,” Andy Heily, the firm’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. 

Once up and running, the facility will help Continental Mills to serve customers in the eastern, midwest, and southeast portions of the US. 

Continental Mills is known for its flagship baking brand Krusteaz. The Tukwila, WA-based firm also makes Kretschmer wheat germ, Albers corn meal and grits, and Alpine cider, as well as snacking products like trail mixes.
