WILLIAMSPORT - Dot Foods Inc. will not expand its Williamsport distribution center for now because the company bought a New York distribution center this summer, a company official said Friday.
The Liverpool, N.Y., distribution center will take care of the company's short-term needs, said James Canella, general manager of the Williamsport distribution center. Dot Foods took over the Liverpool distribution center after buying out its largest competitor, The Drescher Corporation, in June, he said.
Company officials still think there could be an opportunity to expand the local distribution center in the next two years, Canella said.
The manufactured food distributor had planned a $5 million expansion to double the size of the Williamsport center's dry facility to 120,000 square feet.
