For nine years, R. J. Corman Railroad Company served the J.M. Smucker jelly plant on their Tennessee Terminal, but the plant slowly began to decrease the production of its fruit spreads. Smucker’s announced in 2010 the plan to close the jelly plant in Memphis, Tennessee by the summer of 2013, and instead, was going to invest more into the facility in Orrville, Ohio, where the company is based. However, in early 2013, Smucker’s representatives from Ohio contacted R. J. Corman to gain insight on a potential peanut butter plant site. Immediately we showed them the rail line that was serving the jelly plant in Memphis, Tennessee.
