February 18, 2014
Frito-Lay Inc.plans to expand its Aberdeen, Maryland, plant and hire 100 more employees, which would make the facility among the company's largest sites in the United States.

Aberdeen's city council approved a concept plan Monday for a 164,244-square-foot warehouse to be added to the snack manufacturer's existing 360,736-square-foot building.

The expansion would make Aberdeen Frito-Lay's eighth site to get an addition of more than $60 million in the United States, Rich Smucker, the Aberdeen plant manger, told the council.

The expansion also will mean hiring about 100 full-time employees, Smucker said.

Construction on the addition, which would be behind the existing building, could start as soon as this year and be finished in 2015, Smucker said. The new area would be used strictly for distribution.
