Chill Can Project Attracts Interests from Suppliers
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Joseph Company International expects to begin distribution and “some very light manufacturing” by midsummer at its chill can beverage campus, says its chairman and CEO.
And Mitchell Joseph doesn’t expect his company to be alone on the East Side once operations are at full capacity by the end of next year. He’s spoken with executives from several companies that do business with the Joseph Company at its operations on the West Coast and in the United Kingdom, he explains, and they’ve have expressed interest in establishing operations here.
