Senator Collins met with employees of Pineland Farms Potato Company after her tour of the plant.

On April 2nd Pineland Farms Potato Company had the pleasure of hosting Caribou native Sen. Susan Collins for a tour of our processing plant.  With our $7.5 million expansion nearing completion, President & COO Rodney McCrum spoke with the Senator and the Bangor Daily News about how the company’s tremendous growth over the last 5 years has a huge impact on Aroostook County’s economy.  As noted in the BDN, we’ve added over 40 new full-time positions since August 2014, with more positions to be added through the rest of the summer.  More information on Sen. Collins’ visit and bright future of the company is available in the article here.
