Sartori Cheese Expands Plymouth Facility
By Meredith Opie
SHEBOYGAN COUNTY, WI — The Plymouth Plan Commission approved the expansion of a Sartori Whey Converting facility in early June 2021, which will add over 22,000 square feet to the existing cheese plant. Sartori Cheese is converted and packaged at this facility before being shipped to specialty cheese shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and food manufacturers all around the world.
The plant sits along County Road PP in Plymouth, WI and is currently 83,854 square feet. Abacus Architects presented the plans for the expansion. The project is scheduled to be completed in November 2021.
Sartori Cheese is a family-owned company that specializes in award-winning artisan cheese. The company has been making cheese since 1939, honoring Italian traditions while also welcoming the innovation and creativity of its employees. Sartori Cheese maintains its commitment to create the best cheese in the world with every award and accolade.
Fourth-generation member and president of Sartori Cheese, Bert Sartori said, “We are incredibly grateful for the trust our customers place in us, for the passion of our consumers, and for the hard work of Sartori team members and family farms. This project will expand our capabilities and put our growing, innovative business in a position to meet customer demand well into the future.”
The expansion will allow Sartori Cheese to continue to grow as a company, while also providing opportunities for its current employees to advance and new job opportunities for those interested in joining the Sartori Cheese team.
City of Plymouth Administrator Jordan Skiff said, “We are so thrilled to see continued growth for Sartori here in Plymouth. Like all businesses, they have had to adapt to changing markets and a global pandemic, and this is another example of a strong local company finding a way to thrive and grow in tough times.”
