Gluten-Free Manufacturer Schar Breaks Ground on U.S. Facility
Schar USA, subsidiary of Italian firm Dr. Schär Srl, broke ground in January for its first U.S. manufacturing facility, near its Lyndhurst, N.J., U.S. headquarters.
The 50,000-sq.-ft. facility, costing $15 million, will will create 51 new jobs when it begins production in early 2012. As with all of Schar’s facilities, the plant will be dedicated to gluten-free products: baked goods, pasta, mixes and coatings.
