Smucker’s builds $1.1 billion plant in Jefferson County
The Jefferson County Commission announced a $1.1 billion Smucker’s plant that will make “Uncrustables”, the brand’s frozen sandwich treats.
Commissioners said the plant in the McCalla area will bring 750 jobs paying an average of $25 an hour. Smucker’s is best known for its jellies and jams and Uncrustables come in several flavors including peanut butter and grape jelly.
“It’s a sweet deal,” said Commissioner Steve Ammons. He said it would be the largest capital investment by a company in the county’s history.
