Japanese factory starts up in Southport
FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — AUG 28, 2013 —
A handful of West Sacramento officials joined dozens of Japanese employees of the Nippon Shokken company on Monday for the festive grand opening of the Japanese-blend food seasoning plant at 2970 Ramco Street, near Southport Parkway.
The plant is meant to help serve the company’s American market. It will employ up to about 400 people, say city officials.
Attendees were invited to tour the new plant after the ceremonial ribbon-cutting. Media were invited to a press conference, but not to the tour of the production facilities.
