Kraft to invest $5.5 million in Kendallville plant

Kraft Foods plans to invest $5.5 million in new equipment for its Kendallville operation, according to paperwork filed with city officials.

The machinery will increase flexibility and reduce transition times for the company’s marshmallow packing line. The operation, which employs 390, produces marshmallows and caramels.

No new jobs will be created with the investment.

Kraft is asking for a tax abatement on the project. Kendallville City Council is scheduled to introduce and vote on the request Tuesday. The projected tax saving was not available.
