Nestlé Health Science has announced a $43 million investment to expand its manufacturing facility in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
The funding will add two new production lines that will increase its manufacturing capabilities of “high-demand” RTD consumer products.
The Wisconsin site produces a variety of medical nutrition products such as tube feeding formulas and nutritional drinks from brands including Boost and Carnation Breakfast Essentials.
Gaëtan Sion, VP of manufacturing at Nestlé Health Science US, said: “With this investment, Nestlé Health Science will expand and enhance our manufacturing facilities to better meet the needs of patients and consumers. Also, as a member of the Eau Claire community since 1987, we’re proud to help strengthen the local economy by generating more job opportunities that offer competitive pay and benefits.”
According to the company, the investment will bring around 60 jobs – from processing and packaging to mechanics and engineering – to the local community.
Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, commented: “[Nestlé Health Science’s] commitment to innovation, sustainability, and economic wellbeing makes them a leader not only in Wisconsin but in the global marketplace, and we welcome their expansion in our state”.
