Greencore USA is based near Boston in Danvers, Mass. It has six U.S. sites in Jacksonville; Chicago; Newburyport and Brockton, Mass.; Fredericksburg, Va.; and Salt Lake City. Greencore bought the Jacksonville plant through its purchase last June of Chicago-based H.C. Schau & Son Inc.
The Jacksonville operation leases 55,000 square feet of space and currently uses about 25,000 square feet. Greencore intends to expand into the remaining 30,000 square feet of space in a year or two. Greencore has invested more than $10 million in buying and enhancing the Jacksonville plant. This investment could double to $20 million by the time maximum employment is reached.
Major clients nationwide include 7-Eleven, Trader Joe’s, Publix Super Markets Inc., Winn-Dixie Stores, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Kroger and Walgreens.
