        SIDNEY, Ohio — The Peerless Group plans to move operations from its businesses in Chicago and Florida to its manufacturing plant in southwest Ohio.

        Peerless announced Monday that it will spend $1.8 million to expand its plant in Sidney to accommodate the consolidation. The expansion is expected to be finished by the end of 2002.

        Peerless is based in Sidney and makes food-processing equipment. It has annual sales of $40 million.

        The company plans to consolidate Peters Biscuit & Cracker Machinery of Chicago and Fedco Bakery & Food Processing Equipment of Odessa, Fla., within the next year.

        Some employees from the other plants will move to Sidney, a company spokeswoman said.

        The Sidney plant now has 120 workers. The number will increase to 200 when the consolidation is complete.
