Purina Adding 300 Jobs in Carolina Core
Nestlé Purina PetCare is investing $450 million to transform a former brewery in the Carolina Core into an innovative, technically advanced pet food manufacturing facility.
The 1.3 million-square-foot facility in Eden, North Carolina will employ more than 300 people.
The company, which also considered sites in Ohio and Kentucky, chose the Carolina Core for its strong workforce and available real estate.
A $50 million incentive package has been approved, comprised of $24.6 million in state incentives and $24.4 million in local incentives.
