CAMBRIDGE CITY, Ind. -With the help of dedicated employees and the community, Dot Foods, one of the area's largest employers, is proud to announce the fifth anniversary of its Indiana Distribution Center in Cambridge City.
Since opening in 2007, the DC has grown from 62 employees to 234 and expanded shipments from 23 in its first week to now over 150 per week.
"When we decide to put a distribution center in a certain area, we always realize the most important ingredient is the quality of the people in that area that will be our future employees and leaders," said John Tracy, CEO of Dot Foods. "We have been encouraged from the first day in Cambridge City and remain excited about the talent in Indiana."
Around 258 million pounds flow through the distribution center each year, making it the third largest in Dot's DC network. Over $150,000 has been donated to organizations such as Communities in Schools, Birth to Five, Wayne County Schools, United Way, Girls Inc., and many local food pantries.
"It's great to be in a place where our company and community support one another," said Gina Ruffcorn, Human Resources manager at Dot's Indiana Distribution Center. "Without the support of the community, this DC wouldn't be nearly as successful as it is."
Dot Foods and Dot Transportation continue to experience exceptional growth and are hiring in record numbers. Both companies are looking to fill several positions for full and part-time drivers and warehouse personnel in all eight locations.
