The largest maker of rock candy, Richardson Brands will consolidate manufacturing to its headquarters’ facility in Canajoharie, N.Y., near Albany, moving production from several plants elsewhere in the United States. The amalgamation will temporarily suspend production at the factory to make the necessary operational changes.    

“The Richardson plant in Canajoharie provides the company with space for significant expansion of production and for increased proficiency,” says Don Butte, ceo of Richardson Brands.   

As a result, the company will begin producing Richardson mints, Dryden & Palmer rock candy, Bogdon Reception Sticks and Beechies Gum brands at the 180,000-sq.-ft. facility in Canajoharie.
