MADISON, WIS. — The Kraft Heinz Co. has agreed to sell its former Oscar Mayer facility in Madison, Wis., to Reich Brothers Holdings, L.L.C. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Kraft Heinz closed the facility in June after a review of its North American supply chain footprint, capabilities and capacity utilization, the company said. Production of Oscar Mayer hot dogs, cold cuts and Lunchables at the facility in Madison was transitioned to other Kraft Heinz facilities in the United States.

Oscar Mayer is a special brand, and remains an important and successful part of the Kraft Heinz portfolio. We will always be grateful to Madison and the dedicated employees whose work contributed to this brand’s wonderful history over the years.”
Reich Brothers specializes in acquiring turnkey manufacturing plants and provides for the bulk purchase of equipment packages and monetization through the auction sale process.
