Announcing Construction of New Facility
Springfield, OR – July 7, 2016 – Yogi® is proud to announce the construction of a new manufacturing plant on a 13-acre site in Eugene, OR. Expected to open early next summer, “the 180,000 square-foot facility will reunite the 114 employees in the Eugene-Springfield area under one roof,” said CEO Conrad Myers. The site will also allow for a 70,000 square-foot expansion and the company will add approximately 40 employees as it continues to grow in future years.
