Nestle to spend $200M to expand Anderson plant, hire 30 workrs

Nestle USA is planning a $200 million investment at its production facility in Anderson.

The company is asking the Anderson City Council for a tax break as part of a plan to install new equipment at the factory along Interstate 69. Nestle expects to add 30 jobs at the plant, , which makes Coffee Mate and Boost energy drinks, The Herald Bulletin reported. New workers are expected to make an average of $36 per hour, plus benefits.

Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. said he’s thrilled Nestle continues to invest in the site and believes a 70% personal property tax break for seven years is reasonable.

The city’s development director said Nestle has invested about $1 billion since picking Anderson in 2006 and now has more than 800 employees there.

The expansion is the company’s fifth at the plant.
