Hazel Township, PA — The Hershey Co. will break ground March 9 on a $60 million expansion to its Hazelton plant, which will require an additional 111 employees, a more than 25 percent increase in positions at the facility, according to the candymaker.

The construction will primarily focus on installing a new Kit Kat manufacturing line that will enable the company to continue growing the brand, which Hershey anticipates will become its next $1 billion brand.

Todd Tillemans, president of Hershey’s U.S. business, will be joined by other company executives, leaders from the Hazelton plant and local and state politicians during the ceremony. The groundbreaking will take place at 10 am at the plant, which is located at 6 Scotch Pine Dr., Hazel Township, PA.
