EFFINGHAM, Ill. (AP) - Effingham is welcoming a new company to town.

Continental Mills officially opened in the central Illinois city on Tuesday. The food product company finalized a deal with Harlan Bakeries late last year and took ownership of the Effingham plant.

The Effingham Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1rtvjjG ) that the Seattle-based company has invested more than $2 million into the facility. Fifteen employees work for Continental Mills in Effingham, including 13 employees who formerly worked for Harlan Bakeries.

Mayor Merv Gillenwater says Continental Mills took an underutilized plant and turned it into a modern productive facility.
