Rep. Keicher celebrates ribbon cutting at Ferrara distribution center in DeKalb

State Rep. Jeff Keicher (R-Sycamore) and State Rep. Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Ferrara Candy Company’s new 1.6 million square foot distribution center in DeKalb on Wednesday.

The $100 million facility brings 500 jobs and will enhance the company’s ability to serve customers and to meet evolving consumer demands. So far, the company has filled more than half of the jobs and is still hiring.

The distribution complex is located in the center of the Chicago West Business Park, which is south of I-88, near the DeKalb Oasis.
