Company expansion creates distribution jobs in Atlanta

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Jacobson Companies and Pepperidge Farm have opened a new warehouse that will create more distribution jobs in Atlanta.

The 146,000 square foot distribution center in Georgia will serve as a distribution and packaging site for several major Pepperidge Farms brands and becomes the company’s first regional distribution center to handle both snacks and bread products.

Future packing operations will include the creation of end-aisle displays, rainbow pallets and other value-added packaging services.

The operation, which first opened in May, is expected to create around 40 full-time jobs.

Pepperidge Farm has nine bakeries and more than 4,000 employees. Pepperidge Farm has been part of Campbell Soup Company since 1961.

“We selected Jacobson for their strong experience in the food industry and their track record for providing outstanding customer service,” said Brad Charles, Senior Director, Planning & Logistic for Pepperidge Farms. “This new warehouse is a key strategic investment for Pepperidge Farm and will support our distribution growth in the southeast region. The Jacobson Companies team understands our priorities and demonstrated a refreshing ‘can do’ approach as we prepared to open the facility.”

“We’re excited to establish a partnership with Pepperidge Farm through this facility,” said Scott Temple, USA 3PL Country Manager, Norbert Dentressangle. “As a top logistics services provider for the food and beverage industry and an expert in full-service packaging, Jacobson Companies, now Norbert Dentressangle, has more than ever the resources and proficiency to help Pepperidge Farm reach their customers in an efficient and impactful manner.”
