Parsippany, NJ — Ferrero USA, Inc. is expanding its Somerset, NJ, facility with a $9 million expansion that will add nearly 100 jobs and brings the facility to a total of 67,000 square feet of packaging and warehousing space, according to the candymaker.
Since 2016, the company has invested $12 million in the Somerset facility to support the launch of Kinder Joy in the U.S. The success of that brand was the impetus for this new investment, Ferrero USA reports.
On hand during the groundbreaking were Ferrero North America President and CEO Paul Chibe, and New Jersey dignitaries and elected leaders including U.S. Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman; Franklin Township Mayor Phillip Kramer; Patricia Walsh, freeholder, Somerset County; and Michael Kerwin, president and CEO of Somerset County Business Partnership.
“We are proud to do business in Franklin Township, and we’re thrilled to be expanding our existing operations here,” Chibe said. “This renovation demonstrates the ongoing commitment Ferrero has to doing business in the state of New Jersey, and we’re confident this will continue to be a successful partnership for us all.”
