Hilmar Cheese Will Expand, Add 100 Jobs

HILMAR — Many long-standing companies throughout the region have closed their doors in recent years, but one firm isn't only surviving the tough times — it plans to expand its facilities and work force.

Hilmar Cheese Co., a private corporation founded in 1984, plans to add an administration building in a field across August Avenue from its visitor center.

Officials expect the move to generate about 100 jobs in addition to the estimated 770 positions already at the Hilmar facility and 330 positions at the company's Dalhart, Texas, site.
