New Life for Half of Kraft's Plant

Listen to this story

Only a signed deed is left to finalize Kraft's sale of its cheese-making plant to Missouri-based Bristol Manufacturing. The company will manufacture and repair bulk cheese containers under the name St. Lawrence County Manufacturing and Properties. It expects to open in the spring with 10 to 15 workers.

He says the plant's new owners want another tenant.
