Schreiber Foods schedules Carthage plant expansion

Plans to expand a Schreiber Foods plant to eventually add 160 new jobs have been endorsed by a Carthage committee working with the company.

Andrew Tobish, director of combinations for Schreiber, which is based in Green Bay, Wis., confirmed the project, which he said would be complete by late spring or early summer in 2015. The expansion will take place at the huge Fairview Avenue plant constructed by the company several years ago.
