PITTSBURG, KAS. — Kendall Packaging will invest $9 million in an expansion that will double the size of its plant in Pittsburg. The expansion will add 59,000 square feet as well as $6 million worth of equipment.
Based in Mequon, Wis., Kendall Packaging supplies private label companies and specializes in products in the baked foods, cheese, confectionary, dry foods, frozen foods, meats, pasta, personal care, pet food and snack food markets.
