    Just a few months after completing a $156 million factory expansion, the Clinton factory recently announced another planned expansion to add automated warehousing technology to the facility. The $110 million investment will create 15 new jobs and continue its impressive growth to better serve the pets and people who love them.

    Nestle Purina PetCare Company is a subsidiary of Nestle S.A. and is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. Purina manufactures pet care products, including pet food, snacks and cat litter products. In Clinton, Purina produces various dry pet food and snacks. The most recent project includes the construction of a 90,000-squarefoot building to support an expansion at the facility.
