Oh, Boy! Oberto jerky

Oberto Brands, Kent, Wash., a national leader in the meat snacks category and maker of the popular Oh Boy! Oberto jerky line, will open a new production facility in Nashville, Tenn., in the first half of 2013. The new facility will join Oberto’s existing production facility and headquarters in Kent and is being added to help keep up with rapidly growing demand for Oberto’s products, which, according to the company, has doubled over the last few years.

“After seeing tremendous growth over the past few years, we now need to significantly increase our production capabilities,” said Tom Ennis, CEO of Oberto Brands, which owns Oh Boy! Oberto, Lowrey’s Meat Snacks and Pacific Gold Beef Jerky. “We chose Nashville as the location for Oberto’s new production facility because of its great business climate and incredible workforce. We look forward to partnering with this dynamic, growing city to help us diversify our supply chain and get closer to the fastest growing region of our business.”

This new facility also will help continue to ensure that Oberto’s U.S. products are made in the U.S. to guarantee only the highest quality and production standards, as well as to support the U.S. manufacturing industry. Oberto is continuing its commitment to “Made in the USA” started in 2010, when the company brought its manufacturing capabilities back to the U.S. from Brazil, creating nearly 300 jobs.

“I would like to welcome Oberto Brands to Tennessee and thank them for the jobs they will create in the Nashville area,” says Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam. “It speaks volumes of Tennessee's business-friendly environment and qualified workforce when a new company and nationally known brand chooses to locate in our state. We are working hard to become the number one location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs, and Oberto Brands’ announcement today brings us another step closer to reaching our goal.”

Oberto will release job fair and hiring details as the facility nears opening. More information will be available on www.obertobrands.com starting in early 2013.
