CRANSTON, R.I. - John Hazen White Jr., president of Taco Inc., announced the first expansion in the Cranston plant's history at a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The expansion plans call for the construction of a 64,900-square-foot addition to the existing plant, which will serve as a warehouse for shipping and distribution of Taco products. Taco will shift its inventory and some 20 employees from its present warehouse and distribution center on Wellington Avenue, in Cranston, to the Cranston Street facility, bringing all Cranston Taco employees under one roof for the first time.

"We're very pleased to make this announcement," said White. "Bringing our warehouse and distribution functions inside our main facility makes excellent sense in terms of efficiency and cost savings."

Taco plans to start construction in early 2006 and expects to have the facility in operation by August 2006.
