SACO Foods: Breaks ground on new global headquarters
MIDDLETON, WI - SACO Foods broke ground Tuesday on a new global headquarters in Middleton, WI.
The 20,000 square foot expansion of its current facilities is expected to be complete by May 2018. The expansion will open up additional space for manufacturing and office space while generating job opportunities. “This will be the first time in our company’s history where our entire team will be on one campus,” said Tom Walzer, CEO of SACO Foods. “Partnering with the City of Middleton we look forward to continuing the vision of the Sanna family for our customers and community.”
SACO’s existing facility, originally built in 1995, houses a warehouse and packaging facility. According to the company, the expansion will allow SACO Foods to grow two to three times larger than its current operations by adding new packaging lines and warehouse space. The new office space will be used for administrative support for sales and operations. With the partnership of Park Bank and Benford Capital this project will be an asset to Middleton as SACO anticipates significant employee expansion both in manufacturing labor and professional staff in the years to come.
