On Monday, October 23, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission approved preliminary site and operational plans for a 126,000 square foot addition to the Olds Products Company facility located in the LakeView Corporate Park. The request was made on behalf of Muskie Enterprises Inc., owners of the property located at 10700 88th Avenue. The plans detail mass grading, underground utilities, and early footing and foundations necessary to create the addition to the existing site. The expansion would add 22 dock doors. This addition will help Olds Products Co. increase their workforce from 75 to 100 staff working three shifts. Two additional parking spaces will be added to allow for enough parking during shift changes. In 2013 Olds Products Co. expanded from its 48,392 square feet original construction in 1995, to 96,954 square feet.
Olds Products Co. was founded in Chicago, and is the largest private label mustard manufacturer in the country. Olds Products Co. is a mustard manufacturer that serves the retail, food service, distribution and ingredient markets for mustard and vinegar products both nationally and worldwide. They manufacture their traditional yellow salad mustard and a complete range of specialty flavored mustards. They currently offer twenty-one house mustards and dozens of made to order blends for their customers.
The project is anticipated to start in November, 2017.
