Dieffenbach's Potato Chips expands production facilities

Jason Huey, Bethel Operations Manager at Dieffenbach's Potato Chips, is inspecting the organic sweet potato chips being produced in the new facility.

Dieffenbach's Potato Chips Inc. announced yesterday that their latest production facility is officially live.

The multi-million dollar project has been in the works for the past year and a half. The project includes both a new distribution center and additional production lines.

In total, the new facility is 106,000 square feet and will house the company's DSD (Direct Store Delivery) operations, their national distribution for both company and private label brands, and a new state of the art manufacturing line that is capable of processing more than 15 million lbs of potatoes annually.

The future plans for the site would increase that capacity to 200 million lbs.

Nevin Dieffenbach, the CEO of Dieffenbach's, said that the new plant was the next logical step in the company's long term growth strategy. He added that with the recent growth of the business, the company is in need of 30-40 additional employees, with jobs available at both our Womelsdorf site and the new Bethel Facility.

Dieffenbach's is excited about the growth of their business because they truly enjoy making great snacks, and love being able to add more faces to the Dieffenbach team.

Nevin Dieffenbach, CEO at Dieffenbach's:

“I'm the 3rd generation to run the business over the past 50+ years, and we want everyone that comes to work for us, to feel like they are part of our family.”
Mike Marlowe, COO for the company:

“The growth of the company over the past few years is allowing us to create more opportunities for our existing team members as well as opportunities for people looking for a new career.”

“The market has tremendous growth opportunities. We will continue to grow as fast as we can find the right people to join our team.”
