Kerry plans expansion in Manitowoc

MANITOWOC, Wis. (WBAY) - Manitowoc's mayor announced flavorings and nutrition company Kerry wants to expand in the city.

Kerry plans to buy, expand and renovate the former Foster Needle building on Expo Drive.

The company would produce a variety of liquid smoke food-flavoring products.

Kerry acquired four Manitowoc buildings as part of the Red Arrow Products acquisition in 2015.

Mayor Justin Nickels says the new facility would bring three of the four buildings together with 40,000 square feet of space.

There's no word right now on when the facility could open or how many jobs it would create.
