Production Line Expansion at Lee’s Summit

Sep 23

If you’ve been keeping up with our blog, you know that earlier this year Minot Milling completed two major capital projects. This summer, Philadelphia Macaroni Company concluded another key expansion project at one of our Midwest pasta manufacturing facilities.

We recently completed the installation of an all-new FAVA line in our Lee’s Summit, MO facility, increasing our annual production capacity. The line became operational in September 2021. PMC acquired the Lee’s Summit facility from A. Zerega’s Sons in 2020.

“As a company, we are so proud of the milestones we have accomplished over the past 18 months,” says Luke Marano Jr., CEO and President. “We have experienced drastic organizational growth since the pandemic began, from the acquisition and integration of A. Zerega’s Sons in April 2020 to the surges in consumer demand for pasta, and now completing a handful of capital projects in 2021. We have expanded the capabilities of our strategically-located Midwest facilities, further solidifying our position as an industry leader.”

Our Midwest facilities are centrally located, so we can more easily ship to all corners of the continental United States. These capital projects increase our capabilities and strengthen our presence in the industry, allowing us to better serve our customers around the country.

Just as importantly, these projects positively impact our local economies by spurring job creation and bringing new opportunities to the communities in which our facilities reside. We are invested in our plants and in our people. Employment opportunities are available – please call our facilities for more information.
