Wolfgang Confectioners has begun constructing a 78,000-square-foot expansion to its manufacturing facility in Loganville, Pennsylvania.

The expansion will add new production lines to the company’s operations and will create up to 30 additional full-time jobs in the region, a 15% increase in workforce, according to Wolfgang.

When the project is completed with the support from an in-house SQF-certified quality assurance team, the confectioner will occupy a nearly 140,000-square-foot state-of-the-art food manufacturing facility, more than double from its current 58,600-square-foot site.

“The new facility will allow us to expand our manufacturing capabilities at our Loganville location and enhance our ability to be a reliable, capable and innovative co-manufacturing partner,”​ said Sam Miller, Wolfgang Confectioners’ president.

He added Wolfgang’s original historic North York location still operates as an incubator facility where the company partners with clients to commercialize new concepts and perfect new recipes.

Investing millions of dollars

According to Wolfgang, the general contractor on the expansion is Centurion Construction based out of Lewisberry, Pennsylvania, and the project was financed through First National Bank.

“We’re thrilled that Wolfgang took a chance on Loganville by investing in our community,”​ said Ronald Tombesi, president of Loganville Borough Council.

“By investing millions of dollars into Loganville, Wolfgang is showing its commitment to growing and creating jobs. This is not only great growth for the company, but for our community as well,”​ he added.

Wolfgang Confectioners started as a small business in the kitchen of the Wolfgang family home in North York in 1921, and it manufactures private-label confectionery and snacks.
