CSL Behring in tremendous growth mode

KANKAKEE, Ill. - December 8, 2017 — Tricia Stewart, CSL's senior vice president and plant manager of its Bradley plant, gave an update on the company's expanded employee base following the Kankakee County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner meeting Wednesday. CSL was honored as the county's "Large Business of the Year'' during the event.
CSL has seen an increase of 450 employees in the most recent two-year period — and continued growth is on Stewart's mind. The company is set to take possession of the 74-acre former Bunge Oil site, likely before the end of 2017. It sits adjacent to the CSL plant.
According to Tricia Stewart, Sr. Vice President & General Manager of the Kankakee site, "The future is even brighter. We are really setting ourselves up for the future. We plan on bringing more and more of our products here to Kankakee. The company has big plans for the former Bunge site although nothing has been made public. The next thing the public will notice at the company's added acreage will be fencing and signage to let everyone know the land immediately south of the plant near the intersection of Armour Road and Illinois Route 50 is theirs."
