Nestlé Purina Petcare plans to build new factory

The new factory is expected to be operational in 2023.

Nestlé Purina Petcare has announced a 550-mio-dollar investment to build a new factory in Williamsburg Township, Ohio. The new location will join the network of 21 existing manufacturing locations across the United States and be the company's first new factory built from the ground up since 1975.

The new factory will produce dry dog and cat food brands, including Purina Pro Plan, Purina One and Dog Chow. Purina plans to employ more than 300 people at its new factory location by 2024. Many of these jobs will be for professional staff, production operators, technical staff and engineers.
