Nestlé expanding Anderson plant

Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — ANDERSON - Nestlé USA is proud to announce a major new expansion of its plant in Anderson, Ind., and the addition of a seventh production line. This represents a capital investment of more than $72 million, and will increase the production capacity for BOOST® Complete Nutritional Drink and CARNATION BREAKFAST ESSENTIALS® Drink as part of the line of beverages produced in Anderson.

The new line is expected to be in commercial production in 2014.

In choosing the location for the expansion, Nestlé considered several options and selected Anderson as the facility best suited for this major undertaking.

With its combination of attractive economic development policies, strong local workforce and proximity to a large number of high-quality dairy farms, the Anderson community is the best place for this expansion of Nestlé beverage operations. The company will increase the workforce in the future as production volume continues to increase across the Anderson site.

Opened in 2009, the Nestlé Anderson plant also produces COFFEE-MATE® non-dairy creamer and is the sole production site for NESQUIK® ready-to-drink in the U.S. It also serves as a storage and distribution center for other refrigerated Nestlé products, including NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough and BUITONI® pastas. The plant employs more than 700 people in roles ranging from logistics, packaging, process engineering, engineering and controls to automation engineering.
