Smucker adds another $40 million to expansion

by  – Staff writer- Memphis Business Journal

Almost a year after receiving tax abatements for a $55 million expansion of its Memphis facility, the J.M. Smucker Co. is planning an additional $40 million in improvements to its facility at 4789 Cromwell.

The latest improvements will allow the company to expand peanut butter production for its Jif, Laura, Scudders, Adams and Smucker’s brands.

In 2013, Smucker received a 13-year PILOT to convert the infrastructure at its 135,000-square-foot facility that would allow it to manufacture fruit spreads and peanut butter.

According to the company’s PILOT application, the scope of the investment was expanded to include building modifications and additional machinery and equipment for its production needs.

Last year’s expansion plans estimated the addition of 65 jobs, but the new plan pares that back a little to 42 jobs, bringing total employment to 103. Smucker currently employs 61 people in Memphis.

Smucker originally manufactured fruit spread at the facility, but in 2010, announced plans to shut the plant down by summer 2013 because of its investment in a new $220 million facility in Orrville, Ohio, where the company is based. The company decided to keep the Memphis facility open, manufacturing at a smaller capacity before opting to move peanut butter production to the city.

The PILOT application will be presented at the January meeting of the Economic Development Growth Engine of Memphis & Shelby County. The meeting will be held Jan. 15 at the offices of the Better Business Bureau at 3693 Tyndale, beginning at 3 p.m.
