TOWN OF IXONIA - Governor Scott Walker will visit Create-A-Pack Foods, W1344 Industrial Drive, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 to tour the expanding facility.

The facility is adding 114,000 square feet to the already 60,000 square-feet building, said Director of Sales Todd Loepfe.

Joe Jursenas, a spokesman for the project’s construction firm Briohn Building, said the contract food manufacturer’s $5 million expansion will consist of 15,000 square feet of office space, 19,000 square feet in production space and 77,000 square feet of warehouse space.

The production space will have a clearance height of 22 feet, masonry walls and a precast roof.

Jursenas expects the expansion to be complete at the beginning of next year.

According to Loepfe, in the last four years Create-A-Pack added over 150 jobs to support the growing businesses and its four locations.
