Sargento Plans Expansion, Additional Jobs

PLYMOUTH, Wis. (AP) -- Sargento Foods is planning an expansion at its eastern Wisconsin headquarters to accommodate dozens of new hires over the next few years.

The family-owned cheese maker has grown, despite the recession, and it's running out of room.

The multi-million dollar addition will connect an office building to the corporate office and plant in Plymouth.

Sargento president Louie Gentine says the company plans to add at least 120 employees over the next 5 to 6 years.

WLUK-TV reports Sargento plans to break ground for the addition in about two months.
