Built in 1962 with only two lines, the Martel plant has grown into a medium-sized facility producing baking mixes. The plant has an active Employee Events Committee, and also holds an annual Fall Family Fun Day for employees and their families.
The Martel plant is located in Caledonia, Ohio, near Marion and Columbus. The greater Columbus area offers one-of-a-kind shopping, theatre entertainment, rich history and diverse restaurants. But perhaps most of all you will enjoy the relaxed friendly atmosphere of this hometown.
