$555 Million Dairy Processing Factory Expected to Open Near St. Johns
One of the largest dairy processing operations in the country is expected to open near St. Johns by 2020 creating nearly 300 jobs.
The $555 million project will sit on 146 acres in St. Johns, a portion of which was land that previously belonged to Bingham Township.
"This is a huge deal not only for the region but for the state overall," said Jeff Mason, the director of the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
The project includes a $470 million partnership headed by Glanbia Nutritionals and an adjacent $85 million 85,000-square-feet adjacent facility belonging to Proliant Dairy Ingredients. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
