J.M. Smucker to build $1.1 billion Alabama manufacturing plant with 750 jobs

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — The J.M. Smucker Co. announced plans today to build a new manufacturing facility and distribution center in Alabama to support production of Smucker’s Uncrustables, generating large-scale job creation in the Birmingham area.

With a total financial investment of $1.1 billion, the facility in the Jefferson County community of McCalla will be constructed over three phases, creating up to 750 jobs.

“Because The J.M Smucker Co. is one of America’s leading consumer packaged goods companies in the food sector, its decision to make a significant investment in Jefferson County represents a powerful endorsement of Alabama’s inviting business environment,” Governor Kay Ivey said.

“Not only will the company’s growth project create a large number of jobs in McCalla, but it will also permit us to build a long-standing relationship with a top consumer brand.”
