The first phase of a three-part building expansion project for Murdock International is nearing completion in the Springville Industrial Park. The company's rapid growth has created the need for additional warehouse, manufacturing and office space. "Between manufacturing and office personnel, we have created and filled 45 new positions in just the last four months," personnel manager Matthew Murdock said. The company is a supplier of dried foods and herbs. The existing structure was completed and occupied only five years ago. "We knew we would be expanding our facility, but I don't think anybody realized just how soon that would be," said Hugo Boren, executive vice president. The expansions will double the existing office space and increase warehouse capacity 20 percent.
