Nestlé Purina today announced the expansion of its Clinton, Iowa, factory. The USD 140 million (CHF 138 million) investment will allow Purina to meet growing demand from pet owners for nutritious, science-based dog and cat foods using high-quality and trusted ingredients.
Purina, which employs 360 people in Clinton, established local operations in 1969. The expansion will add new processing and packaging lines for the production of 'dry', or kibble-based, pet foods and lead to total job growth of more than 60 positions.
The Clinton factory plays a unique role in Purina's network of 21 factories across the United States. The location is a hub for innovation and design of new products, in addition to producing flagship brands including Purina ONE and Purina Pro Plan, both of which are experiencing double digit growth.
