The American pet food company, Hill’s Pet Nutrition plans for an expansion in Warren County to create 25 full-time jobs.
The $25 million investment will add a packaging unit to the company’s Turner Court plant in Bowling Green.
This will improve capacity in response to rising demand for the company’s expanding product offerings.
The facility presently employs 171 employees, and will hire more workers in production, technology, food safety, and administrative support when it moves to 24-hour operations seven days a week.
Work on the extension is planned to begin in 2022 and be finished by early 2025.
Steve Nelson, plant manager for Hill’s Pet Nutrition said: “As a longtime member of the Bowling Green community, we are proud of our continued growth and our ability to add more jobs in the area, with a focus on attracting diverse candidates.”
He added: “Working at Hill’s is much more than a job. Our diets help transform the health of pets and enrich their special relationship with their families. As a company, we are committed to making a positive impact in everything we do – from sustainability to animal welfare to our community involvement.”
Hill’s a subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive Co. was established in 1948 and is headquartered in Topeka, Kansas.
The Warren County facility started its operations in 1987, and has invested more than $150 million in the operation over the last three decades.
