IPC acquires Michigan facililty
Carroll County’s Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), a leading pork products producer, announced Tuesday it has purchased 100 percent of the stock of Quincy Street, Inc., located in Holland, Mich. According to a press release, IPC and Quincy Street have maintained a business relationship for over 20 years.
IPC paid an undisclosed amount to purchase Quincy Street, which is a private label food manufacturer servicing large national and regional accounts throughout the country. The Quincy Street plant is located in Western Michigan and produces dinner hams, spiral sliced hams, breakfast sausages, deli meats, specialty toppings and cooked boneless pork loins using the latest smokehouse technology to create an old-fashioned natural wood smoked flavor.
“We are excited about the future growth opportunities at Quincy Street,” IPC President Russ Yearwood said. “The Quincy Street dedication to producing high-quality pork products and commitment to customer service complement our business strategy and core values. We look forward to realizing the advantages brought by Quincy Street for many years to come.”
IPC was founded in 1994 and produces fresh pork daily. Offering lines of signature smoked meat products under the INDIANA KITCHEN® brand, the company features a variety of smoked meat products, including ham, sausage and the popular INDIANA KITCHEN® bacon available in smoked, peppered and apple wood varieties. IPC serves retail and food service customers across the country and exports products to foreign countries.
Quincy Street, Inc. was created in 1995 and produces high-quality pork products sold to regional and national customers of all sizes. The company is recognized as an industry leader in customer commitment and service.
“The purchase of Quincy Street Inc. will enhance the IPC operation in Delphi,” Yearwood concluded. “It will better enable IPC’s ability to weather the cyclical nature of the fresh pork business.”
