Neri’s Bakery Products Inc.
When Paul Neri started Neri Bakery in Port Chester, N.Y., in 1910, he probably did not expect the business to grow into the largest employer in town. With 311 employees on 24/7 shifts in a 240,000-square-foot facility, it is. And in the past three years, the company has invested more than $5 million in improvements to its plant. “It’s an enormous investment to stay up in this industry with the latest equipment, but if you do it, usually the payback is pretty good,” Vice President of Operations C. Domenick Cicatelli declares.
