Photo Gallery | Nippon Shokken to build first U.S. plant in West Sacramento
Nippon Shokken U.S.A. had a ground breaking ceremony today in West Sacramento for its first production facility in the U.S.
The 70,000 square foot facility will house the U.S. headquarters, sales and production operations in West Sacramento's Southport Business Park.
Nippon Shokken is the top producer of Japanese blend seasonings in the world. The West Sacramento facility will enable Nippon Shokken to provide high quality products from coast to coast in the U.S.
West Sacramento's infrastructure, high quality water and city business support were factors in Nippon Shokken's decision to select West Sacramento for its U.S. expansion.
Construction of the new plant is expected to be completed in January 2013 and will create over 100 new jobs in the city.
