'V8' Spells Healthy Growth
for Campbell's in Ohio
The world's largest Campbell's Soup plant has grown even larger. The northwest Ohio town of Napoleon saw the November 2004 completion of a $43-million investment for the manufacture of plastic containers for juices.
The project was composed of a 65,000-sq.-ft. (6,000-sq.-m.) blow molding plant to be operated by Amcor PET Packaging of Manchester, Mich., as well as two new flexible production lines.
The overall investment will result in the creation of 51 new jobs at Campbell's 47-year-old complex, which employs 1,200 full-time and 400 part-time workers. The Campbell's operation was formerly supplied by an Amcor plant in Franklin, Ind.; many of those workers will now work in the Napoleon plant. Australia-based Amcor operates 31 of its 236 worldwide plants in North America.
"With today's dedication, Campbell Soup Company puts a $43 million exclamation point on the more than $100 million dollars in capital investment we have made in our Napoleon plant over the past four years," said Mark Sarvary, President, Campbell North America. "As a result of these investments, Campbell-Napoleon is now more competitive in terms of both efficiency and quality."
