Snyder's-Lance Developing 60,000 SF R&D Facility in Hanover, PA

"Charlotte, NC-based Snyder's-Lance, Inc. said Tuesday that it will construct a Research and Development Center near one of its largest bakeries in Hanover, PA. The project is scheduled to be complete in fourth quarter of 2012.

The 60,000 square foot, three story building was designed to earn LEED Silver Certification. The new center will also receive all of its electricity from the Company's twenty six acre solar panel farm located nearby.

"Our solar field provides roughly 30% of the electricity used by the Hanover manufacturing facility and will now supply 100% of the electricity for our new Research andDevelopment Center," said Carl E. Lee, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer in a statement.

The center will research, develop and enhance new and existing products across the Company's entire line of consumer snack foods, including Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels, Lance Sandwich Crackers, and Cape Cod Potato Chips. Detailed product and quality comparisons, sensory evaluation and a full microbiology lab are only a few of the primary services to be provided in this new facility."
