Frick’s Quality Meats, which manufactures smoked meats and sausages in many varieties, is planning a 18,000-square-foot expansion to its existing 120,000-square-foot facility at 360 M. E. Frick Drive.
To accommodate the company’s expansion, the city is making necessary stormwater improvements to the industrial park through a recently approved Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for $678,075. The CDBG was approved by the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED).
The city of Washington will utilize the CDBG to make stormwater improvements at the industrial park.
