APPLETON, WIS. — Presto Products recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its expansion in Waupaca. The expansion will increase the size of its state-of-the-art recloseable packaging manufacturing facility and add rail access to help the company meet heightened production and demand.

The project will add 40,000 square feet to the existing structure, effectively doubling its current size. It will also improve production and overall operations and create new jobs in the surrounding community. The expansion is scheduled for completion in July 2022.

“It is hard to believe that at this time in 2015, we submitted the paperwork to buy this building… and in November 2016, our very first Waupaca line went live,” said Brad Hansen, president of Presto’s Specialty Products businesses. “Today, we are proud to knock down these walls to make room by doubling the amount of space for the building.

“I thank all the employees at Presto for their relentless pursuit of excellence,” Hansen added. “We could not have achieved this growth without the resolve of the entire team.”

Presto Products has partnered with local contractors and consultants to help facilitate the expansion.
