MUNSTER | Gov. Mike Pence will join executives from Land O’Frost Inc. at 2:15 p.m. Wednesday for a groundbreaking ceremony at the company’s new headquarters, 630 Hagburg Drive.
Land O’Frost, the nation’s second-largest seller of pre-sliced, pre-packaged lunchmeats and a producer of specialty sausage products, announced plans in December to invest $6.4 million to relocate its corporate headquarters from Lansing to a three-acre campus in Munster. The company expects to create up to 50 new jobs by 2014.
Construction on a 27,000 square-foot facility is scheduled to begin this month and is expected to be operational in 2014.
Land O’Frost is a third-generation family-owned business that currently employs about 50 at its headquarters and more than 1,100 at its four production plants.
