The Mount Olive Pickle Company continues to meet the increasing needs for warehouse space. Company spokesperson Lynn Williams said the latest acquisition to meet those needs is the purchaser of the former Hilex Poly facility on the Old Mount Olive Highway. The $1.8 million purchase was closed the last week in April. Ms. Williams said the company plans to convert the space into warehousing for finished products. She said it will provide a capacity of approximately 1.3 million cases. The expected two-month, $1 million renovation is already underway, she said.
