Nestlé Purina has announced the expansion of its Clinton, Iowa, factory. The expansion represents a 140-mio-dollar investment that will allow Purina to meet growing demand from pet owners for their products.
Purina currently employs 360 people in Clinton. 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 employees.
Purina has had a presence in Iowa since 1927 and also operates pet food factories in Fort Dodge and Davenport, with approximately 1 000 employees across the state.
