“This expansion will provide the resources to take our training program to the next level,” said Rob Connelly, Henny Penny president and chief executive, in a statement.
“This dedicated high-tech space fits right in line with our goals to continuously innovate and provide the highest-quality customer service. We’re excited to see how this space will make us better and give our training and product development teams the tools they need to be even more successful,” Connelly said
The expansion opening was celebrated Thursday night by area dignitaries and Henny Penny employees. A community event and open house is slated for the spring of 2016.
Henny Penny employs about 600 workers in Eaton and has annual sales of about $185 million. In December 2014, it became an employee-owned company.
