2.1. Landmarks Esskay Meats

Esskays main meatpacking plant was located in the Baltimore Highlands neighborhood at 3800 E. Baltimore Street until 1993. When the plant was completed in 1920, the company incorporated and began operating as Schluderberg-Kurdle Co., Inc., the result of a merger that year between Schluderberg Meatpacking Company and a meatpacking business owned by Thomas J. Kurdle. Esskay was a trade name for the companys products. Its corporation name was amended to Esskay, Inc. on January 17, 1989.

After it was purchased in 1985 by Smithfield Foods, Inc., Esskay continued operating as a subsidiary of Smithfield. Its Baltimore plant was closed in 1993, because its structure was not strong enough to support the 10-ton ham-boiling machines the company was planning add to its operations. Its departure from Baltimore also involved a dispute over the continued payment of retiree health benefits.
