Each bay is 2,000 square feet.

The expansion allows the company to carry more volume of its existing produce, dairy, paper goods and frozen gourmet pasta lines.

Sanfillipo said company sales are up 32% as compared to last year, and he expects 2011 to be another year of growth.

Sirna & Sons upgrades traceability system

By early 2012, Cleveland-based Sirna & Sons Produce plans to implement a new traceability system that is in compliance with the Produce Traceability Initiative, said Tom Sirna, president.

The system will use bar codes on each case of produce.

Sirna & Sons also has added 12,000 square feet and six docks to its Norwalk, Ohio, facility, Sirna said.

It now has 14 shipping and receiving docks.

Sirna & Sons also replaced its lighting in Norwalk and in its Cleveland facility with energy-efficient lighting. In 2012, the company will replace its fleet of 65 trucks with new fuel-efficient trucks, Sirna said.

Sirna & Sons in October was recognized for job creation with an award from the Norwalk Economic Development Corporation.

In the last three years, the company has added 25 jobs in Norwalk and Cleveland, Sirna said.
