More Jobs by July are promised by Litehouse Foods in Washington County, UT
More jobs will be available by July in Washington County, Utah from Litehouse Foods. Director of Operation for Litehouse Foods said the plant has opened with two production lines and by July they expect to have nine production lines going, which means they will need more staff. Officials are confident in the company’s employment contribution to Washington County, Utah where they are expected to see increases in the economy.
Earlier it was reported that Litehouse Foods would bring more than 150 jobs to the area and it is now projected that in a few years it will be the largest Litehouse plant in the country. Since Washington County is seeing a brighter future in the real estate market, many residents and newcomers are showing an overwhelming interest in becoming part of the staff.
There are currently 50 people employed at the plant, 30 of these workers were transferred from other plants. However, they are expecting to fill another 45 positions with Utah residents by July. The company expects to have upwards of 150 employees by the end of that year as they grow.
Litehouse purchased a plant in the Seattle area last summer with the intention of acquiring its assets and equipment, the plant was then closed and the employee’s relocated to Idaho and Southern Utah. Experienced people were needed and this was an opportunity for many in the company to grow with the new facility.
The company is doing a significant amount of training and will continue as the company grows. The newcomers to the Washington County area are contributing to the community by purchasing homes and adding to the local economy of Southern Utah.
Persons interested in working for Litehouse Foods are asked to go to the Hurricane location and fill out an application or leave a resume. Litehouse employees own 30% of the company and as a result are highly motivated to ensure the company’s success. Part of their retirement is also tied to how well the company does.
