Nestlé Purina PetCare Company has announced plans to open a factory and distribution centre in Hartwell, Georgia in the US. The plant will create as many as 240 new jobs over the next five years. The Hartwell site will be Purina’s 21st factory in the US and the first new factory therein 20 years.

The company plans to invest $320 million (SFr310 million) in the facility between now and 2023. The investment is in line with Nestlé’s strategy to increasingly focus capital spending on advancing the high-growth food and beverage categories of coffee, petcare, infant nutrition and bottled water.

Distribution centre operations are expected to begin in 2018, with production to follow in 2019. The factory will apply Nestlé principles on environmental impact. The company seeks to reduce its environmental footprint by improving efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, achieving zero waste to landfill, using renewable energy and being good stewards of water.
