DAISY BRAND REPRESENTATIVES REVIEW BUILDING PLANS By STEVEN F. HUSZAI Staff Writer

facility on 75 acres off of state Route 585 will become operational in two phases over the next year. First, the facility’s distribution center and support operations to make sour cream is anticipated to begin in October. Daisy plans to have 15-20 workers by the end of the year. And in the second phase, they will bring on the production and packaging aspect of the facility by July 2016. Barth estimated they would have 50-60 employees by next year. He estimated the 200,000-square-foot facility could cost between $80-100 million to get operational to make sour cream and cottage cheese for the Midwest region. He explained Daisy started an exhaustive search in 2012 to locate a site for the company’s third manufacturing facility, as Daisy has experienced strong growth in the past decade. Daisy has averaged 5 percent-7 percent growth over the past seven years. Barth said they knew it would be in the Great Lakes region and looked at Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Indiana cities. Daisy needed a strong dairy supply, good water supply and a healthy transportation network. But Barth said what tipped the scales was “we felt like we would be more wellreceived here ... it was a little easier to work with the folks here.” Hammerly also reviewed the company’s history since it was formed nearly a century ago. “It’s always a pleasure to tell our story,” Barth told the group.

epresentatives from Daisy Brand were on hand during the weekly Kiwanis Club meeting Tuesday to review their building plans. But the most pressing issue was how many jobs will be created and how soon will the work start. Jake Hammerly and Brian Barth, plant managers who are overseeing the Wooster plant until it is operational, said Daisy has contracted with Staffing Partners to begin the interview process and they have started that process. Initially, Daisy is seeking production employees to manufacture sour cream. Hammerly said the two key ingredients to work for Daisy are “attitude and aptitude.” “It’s always a nicety to have done the job before ... but if you have a good attitude, I can teach you Daisy,” Hammerly said, noting he has started interviewing applicants. Available jobs will be posted on Daisy’s website. They added starting pay varies based on the individual employee. “We pay above average compensation to the area,” Barth said. The company strives to provide an environment for its employees where they can maintain a healthy work-life balance by also providing paid vacation and sick time, health insurance, 401(k)/profit sharing plans and reimbursements for health club memberships. The company runs first and second shifts and tries to keep its employees on five-day work weeks. And when they hire Reporter Steve Huszai can be reached at 330-287employees, they are full-time workers. Barth said the company does right by its customers and its 1645 or shuszai@the-daily-record.com. He is @ GeneralSmithie on Twitter. employees. Barth added construction of the company’s new greenfield

THE CAMPUS OF THE WAYNE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY FEATURES SEVEN STRUCTURES: The General Reasin Beall Homestead – War of 1812 veteran, General Reasin Beall, began construction on his home in 1816 and finished in the early 1820s. It is the oldest surviving grand-style home in Wayne County. The first floor of the Beall home has been structurally renovated, refurbished, and furnished in the era of the 1850’s-1860’s. In addition, an 1820-1830 kitchen was reconstructed in the basement. The second floor is currently being refurbished and furnished in the 1820-1830’s era. The Kister Building – The first floor contains the offices, conference room and research library. It also contains the Special Exhibit Room featuring rotating exhibits and will contain a new Welcome Center area, to be completed in 2015. The Carriage Barn – Originally located at the north end of Wooster, the 1880’s carriage barn was reconstructed in 2012. It contains several horse drawn vehicles, Gerstenslager buggies, children’s carriages and several transportationrelated items of interest. The General Mercantile Store & The Ladies Dress Shop – This mid-19th century Fredricksburg building was reconstructed on this site in 1995. It includes a turn-of-thecentury general store and a ladies dress shop with vintage fashions and early textiles. The 1873 Schoolhouse – Once serving students at the southern edge of Wooster, this one-room schoolhouse was dismantled and reconstructed on the campus in 1964-66. It reflects the atmosphere of a late 1800s learning center, complete with McGuffey Readers, dunce cap and stool, and pot-belly stove. Relief Company No. 4 Firehouse – Completed in 2005, Relief Company No. 4 is an authentic reproduction of an

1888 firehouse from Wayne County. The lower level reflects the furnishings of a 1900s firehouse and contains fire equipment from the 1830s-1920s including a hand pumper, steam pumper and hand-drawn ladder wagon. The upper level houses additional exhibits related to the history of firefighting and fire and rescue squads in the county. Log Cabin – The 1830’s Log Cabin, given to the society in the mid 1900’s was dismantled and reconstructed adjacent to the 1873 Schoolhouse. It contains a display depicting the difficult and exacting lifestyle in early Wayne County. County Home One-room Schoolhouse and Smokehouse – Recently moved from the Wayne County Home, this building was used as a one room schoolhouse from 1852 through the 1870’s for orphans and dependent children until the County Children’s Home was built. Then is was used as a smoke house and for related agricultural uses. Permanent Exhibit Area – Currently, the permanent exhibits in the basement include Farming in Wayne County, Birds and Animals from the St. Louis World’s Fair, Prehistoric Relics, Tools, and Arrowheads. In 2012, all of the basements of the Kister Building, Firehouse, General Store and the 1873 Schoolhouse were connected with a tunnel between the Kister Building and the Firehouse. This will make this space totally handicapped accessible including two accessible entrances. When completed, it will triple the size of the potential permanent exhibit area and will ultimately contain all of the 56 categories of exhibits of the Society. Fire Retardant and Temperature Controlled Storage Vaults – Three of the most extensive and valuable collections are stored in locked vaults in the basement. They house textiles, military items and documents.

Contact Information - 1170 Akron Rd. (330) 264-5222 Head of School - Roni Mellon More Information - The Montessori School of Wooster is a private, non-profit school currently enrolling students ages 3 to 12 years of age. The school offers an individualized, hands-on approach to education based on the teaching method of Maria Montessori (young children learn best in a prepared setting filled with developmentally appropriate materials which provide experiences contributing to the growth of self-motivated, independent learners). Children of mixed ages and abilities work together in a Montessori class. Multi-age grouping permits independent development, discourages individual competition and encourages peer learning and interaction on a variety of levels. The Montessori School of Wooster began in 1984, growing from a children’s house, serving children ages 3-6, to now include grades 1-6. Using the Montessori method, the school’s goal is to instill a joy of learning and to provide the highest quality education that nurtures diversity, respect for self, others and all living things. Observers are always welcome. The school is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.
