Johnsonville Sausage breaks ground on expansion facility


SHEBOYGAN FALLS, WI (WTAQ) - One of Wisconsin’s best-known sausage-makers has started building a 40,000 square foot expansion that will produce a new product line.

Ground was broken Tuesday on the project at the Johnsonville Sausage headquarters near Sheboygan Falls.

The company did not provide specifics on the new product line – but officials said it would use new technology to make food items that will be a key factor in the future growth of Johnsonville.

The new addition will be connected to the company’s current processing operations – and it will make products for retailers and food service customers.

Johnsonville expects the new facility to be up and running by the third quarter of next year, and it’s expected to create around 35 new jobs. The firm did not say how much the addition would cost.
