Ruiz Food Products expands in multiple locations

Ruiz Food Products is moving into phase two of its expansion plans, according to the Business Journal for Meat and Poultry Processors. The company is investing $20 million in it's Denison, Texas, food processing plant to add a second production line.

The company opened the Denison, Texas, facility in May 2005 and announced the first phase of its expansion in 2013, the journal reported. It invested $30 million to expand the plant by 50,000 square feet. A new line was installed to increase production of the company's El Monterey and Tornados product lines.

The newest product line Ruiz Food Products will lead to about 175 new jobs.

Earlier in June, the food manufacturer announced plans to invest $55 million to establish an East Coast production facility in Florence County, South Carolina, according to Area Development. The company is taking over and renovating a former Heinz plant. Renovations are to begin immediately and the company hopes to be fully operational by 2015. The investment will create 500 new jobs over the next few years.

Companies expanding in a new region of the U.S. should work with manufacturing recruiters to find the most qualified candidates for their open positions.
