“ConAgra Foods officials approached us to see if we were interested in becoming their supplier for their PAM product and other private label cooking spray business,” said David L. Clapp, president and chief executive officer of Full-Fill Industries.
To accommodate the increased volume of business, Full-Fill Industries will construct three new production lines in 25,000 square feet of new manufacturing space. The company also will build a 108,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution building, which will include eight new docks, and additional bulk tank storage for edible oils.
The company will add approximately 150 full-time employees, including management, administrative and production positions as the ConAgra business transitions to the Henning plant in the next 12 months to 18 months. Full-Fill Industries currently employs 94 full-time employees over two shifts.
