US-based company Pretzels has announced plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Plymouth, Indiana.

With the expansion of the Indiana facility, the company intends to increase its capacity across a range of products and capabilities.

Pretzels CEO Greg Pearson said: “This expansion exemplifies Pretzels’ commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations by significantly enhancing our capabilities and capacity.

“Pretzels’ management and employees are executing on several strategic growth initiatives, including this expansion, which will enable us to support our customers’ commercial success for years to come.

“On behalf of the entire Pretzels team, I want to thank our loyal customers, dedicated employees, and supportive community for being an integral part of our growth.”

As part of the expansion, the company will add more than 120,000ft² to its existing Plymouth facility, as well as accommodate production and packaging lines, while increasing the efficiency of existing operations.

Additionally, the expanded facility will enhance employee amenities and serve as a catalyst for new jobs in the Plymouth community.

The newly expanded facility is expected to become operational in the second quarter of next year.

The company further noted that the expanded facility would complement its existing operations in Bluffton and enhance the depth and breadth of offerings to its diverse customer base.

Established in 1978, Pretzels is a portfolio company of middle-market private investment firm Peak Rock Capital.

It manufactures and distributes traditional, peanut butter filled, flavoured, seasonal, and gluten-free pretzels, as well as extruded snack products to a diverse customer base.

Last October, an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital acquired snack products supplier Pretzels for an undisclosed sum.
