Edy’s hiring 120 for Fort Wayne ice cream plant

Edy’s Grand Ice Cream is hiring about 120 workers for the Fort Wayne plant where it makes Nestle drumsticks and other products.

Human resources manager Rick Benson says the new jobs are part of a company consolidation after an expansion of the
Fort Wayne plant. The hiring will increase the plant’s workforce to about 600 people.

The company said last year
that it was in the final phases of a $29.5 million expansion at the Fort Wayne plant. Edy’s added about 115 workers in 2008
in a first wave of hiring for the expansion.

Edy’s is a subsidiary of Swiss-based Nestle.
