Uncle Ray’s has big plans for Montgomery City, where it is planning to invest more than $13 million and create 110 new full-time jobs over the next few years.

Detroit-based Uncle Ray’s is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the H.T. Hackney Co., one of the largest wholesale distributors in the United States.

The company intends to make improvements to the vacated Tyson Foods building in Montgomery City it purchased to accommodate receiving raw potatoes and producing and shipping finished products.

“We are happy to close on this property in Montgomery County, and we look forward to becoming part of that community,” Bill Sansom, Chairman and CEO of H.T. Hackney Co., stated in a news release by the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “We do a considerable amount of business in Missouri and look forward to growing our presence there. We have not determined a start time on our new facility, but now that we own the property, we will proceed with our final plans for our potato chip plant.”
