Titletown Cheese Trading Co. to add jobs at new cheese distribution facility
LEDGEVIEW (WLUK) -- A Ledgeview cheese company has purchased a closed cheese facility in Denmark, adding new jobs.
Titletown Cheese Trading Company says it acquired the Lake to Lake cheese factory on South Wall Street in Denmark.
The facility will cut and wrap cheese from more than 40 different suppliers.
Jerry Haines, the president of Titletown Cheese, says the acquisition is something the company has had in the works for more than a year, "This facility puts Titletown in a great position to continue its expansion, not only locally but also into worldwide markets. We are both excited and proud to be a part of the Denmark community, an area that is well known for its great agricultural and dairy history. The local citizens and government officials we have dealt with could not have been more friendly and welcoming."
Haines says he plans to hire 20 to 40 new employees within 90 days. He will begin accepting applications within a month at Titletown Cheese's Ledgeview office, located at 2200 Dickinson Road.
