'This is really good news' — Tecumseh Bonduelle plant expanding, hiring 40 more workers

January 29, 2018 | The Windsor Star, Sarah Sacheli

In its first expansion in more than five years, vegetable processing giant Bonduelle is adding another product line to its Tecumseh plant and hiring 40 more full-time workers.

The international food processor is retooling its plant in Belvidere, Ill., and relocating its boil-in-bag vegetables line to Tecumseh, Jeff Nancekivell, Bonduelle’s director of operations for Ontario and Alberta, said Monday. To handle the work, the plant needs more machine operators, fork truck drivers and general labourers, said Patrick Persichilli, the plant’s human resources manager.

Wages for labourers start at $15 an hour and fork truck drivers and machine operators begin at $17.75 an hour or higher, depending on experience, Persichilli said.

Word of the hiring spree is spreading like wildfire, through social media and word of mouth.

“My phone has been ringing off the hook,” Persichilli said of the calls he was getting all weekend. Because of the response, he urges job seekers to visit the plant’s employment office at 1192 Lacasse Blvd. in person. [Read more]
