Hagerstown officials on Tuesday morning will announce the new owners of the former Unilever ice-cream plant during a ceremony at the factory site, according to a city news release.

The plant, also known as the Good Humor-Breyers ice-cream plant, at 1100 Frederick St. in Hagerstown, was purchased by two investment firms — New Mill Capital LLC of Los Angeles and the M. Davis Group LLC of Pittsburgh — earlier this year, city officials announced in May, with an eye toward selling it to a food-processing company.

The ice-cream plant closed in July 2012 and had about 390 employees, according to a previous story in The Herald-Mail.

Hagerstown Mayor David Gysberts, the Hagerstown City Council and the Washington County Board of Commissioners are expected to attend the event, the release said.

The 11.6-acre property was worth about $3.8 million in 2011, according to the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation website.

 On the New Mill Capital website, the factory is described as a “140,000-square-feet dairy-processing plant.”
