Smack in the center of the Badger State there’s a big-hearted little city known for cranberries and the best Independence Day fireworks for miles around. There are 18,000 neighbors in this place everyone calls “The Rapids” and a river runs through it.
Most places, a river divides communities but the one in Wisconsin Rapids brings folks together – just like it did in 1920 when the towns of Centralia on the Wisconsin River’s western shore and Grand Rapids on the east united to become one energetic city with a can-do spirit, the seat of Wood County.
Farmland, wild lands, lakes and streams abound in every direction and there’s always plenty to do inside or out of doors, in the woods or right downtown. Not far from the center of the action is Ocean Spray’s newest process plant where three production lines produce Sweetened Dried Cranberries (SDCs) and Concentrate.
Here on this 70 acre, 300,000 square foot manufacturing, warehousing and fresh fruit processing operation, 134 non-union employees – with an average length of service of four years – keep this pristine facility producing amazing results to the tune of 51 million pounds of SDCs and 2.5 million gallons of concentrate every year. The facility went through a $70 million expansion to double the size and triple the staff of the facility in 2008. Along the way, the Rapids plant has earned Plant of Year Honors for Pool Years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
