Frick’s Quality Meats, a manufacturer of smoked meats and sausages, announced plans to expand in Washington, Missouri. The expansion represents $8 million in capital investment and is anticipated to add more than 40 new jobs to the region.
To accommodate the company’s expansion, the city is making necessary water improvements to the industrial park through a recently approved Community Development Block Grant
“Missouri supports our current businesses, and we are here to help them grow,” said DED Acting Director Rob Dixon. “With this grant, the City of Washington can make necessary facility improvements that will benefit Frick’s Quality Meats as well as help attract new businesses in the future.”
Frick’s Quality Meats plans to break ground on the 18,000 sq. ft. expansion to its existing 120,000 sq. ft. facility at 360 M. E. Frick Drive in the fall of 2017.
“We are very pleased to see Frick’s expansion of their existing facility within Schulze Industrial Park,” said Darren Lamb, City Administrator for the City of Washington. “Their commitment to the Washington community over generations is impressive and we appreciate our partnership with them.”
“We are excited to see this growth opportunity for Frick’s Quality Meats,” said Mayor Sandy Lucy. “This is another fine example of a locally-owned industry investing in our community and our labor force.”
Frick’s Quality Meats is a family-owned and operated company that has been located in Washington for five generations. Frick’s makes artisan smoked meats and sausages with distribution to grocery retailers in 44 U.S. states.
“We look forward to the opportunities the expansion brings,” said Dave Frick, Owner of Frick’s Quality Meats. “Including meeting the growing demand of our customers and the launch of Frick’s Natural and Organic products.”
