Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips Inc. in the US announced today that their latest production facility in Pennsylvania is officially live. The multi-million dollar project has been in the works for the past year and a half. The project includes both a new distribution center and additional production lines.
In total, the new facility is 106,000 square feet and will house the company’s DSD (Direct Store Delivery) operations, their national distribution for both company and private label brands, and a new state of the art manufacturing line that is capable of processing more than 15 million lbs of potatoes annually.
The future plans for the site would increase that capacity to 200 million lbs. Nevin Dieffenbach, the CEO of Dieffenbach’s, said that the new plant was the next logical step in the company’s long term growth strategy. He added that with the recent growth of the business, the company is in need of 30-40 additional employees.
