Governor Nikki Haley will make one of her first visits to Chester County next month for a ground-breaking at Haddon House. In November of last year, Haddon House, an exporter, importer and distributor of food products, announced plans to increase its operations in the county. Haddon Houses' plans are to expand its existing facility, located at 578B L and C Industrial Park, in Richburg to allow for increased volume for the company's distribution operations. The company currently has more than 250 employees at the location. The $3.1 million expansion is expected to create 100 new jobs and is slated to be completed by 2017.

Haddon House Food Products is the largest privately owned distributor, importer and exporter of specialty, natural, organic, ethnic and kosher foods. For more than 50 years, Haddon House has provided quality dry grocery, frozen and refrigerated products to thousands of retailers in the United States and abroad.

The company services customers from two major, state-of-the art distribution centers located in Howell, New Jersey and Richburg. Abroad, Haddon House is a well-known experienced export distributor providing products and service to leading retailers throughout the Caribbean, Central America, South America and Asia, for more than 20 years.

Haley is scheduled to speak, tour the facility and help with the ceremonial shovel groundbreaking. An e-mail to a Haley spokesman seeking to confirm that February's visit will be her first to Chester as governor was not returned.
