    Mark Southwick knows what it takes to roll up his sleeves and get the job done.

    After all, he grew up on a farm.

    Southwick, 37, is the new plant manager at Huhtamaki in Fulton and is bringing a solid work ethic to an environment that demands nothing less. He succeeds Thomas Meucci, who has been employed by Huhtamaki for 28 years.

    The Fulton facility is part of a 16-plant manufacturing system in North America. Huhtamaki specializes in providing shaped paperboard packaging and filling systems focusing on primarily the food industry.

    “The main focus of the facility is frozen dessert packaging and this is an industry where good quality products and service is most important,” Southwick said. “This facility has delivered on that promise for many years.”
