Walmart Plans $165 Million Milk Plant in Indiana


FORT WAYNE, IN
Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Walmart has revealed that it will be investing $165 million in a new milk-processing facility in Allen County, Indiana, in a move that will create approximately 250 full-time jobs. The cost of the investment was disclosed in the company’s application to the county for a more than $10 million local tax breaks over 10 years, which was approved last week by the Allen County Council.

According to the application, the company plans to spend $83 million on real-estate improvements, including an approximately 255,000-square-foot building, and $82 million on equipment.

Great Value Milk

“By operating our own plant and working directly with the dairy supply chain in the Midwest, we’ll further reduce operating costs and pass those savings on to our customers so that they can save money,” commented Tony Airoso, Senior Vice President of Sourcing Strategy for Walmart U.S., as we’ve previously reported. “This facility is an example of how we are always finding efficiencies within the supply chain to deliver everyday low prices and high quality groceries.”

According to Fort Wayne, Indiana-based, Journal Gazette, of the 251 full-time jobs listed, 100 will be truck drivers who will make about $75,000, 90 will be “production associates” at an average base salary $40,000, 40 will be maintenance technicians at an average base salary of $55,000, and 21 management and supervisory positions at an average base salary of $91,000.

As per a prior company announcement, the plant will be producing Great Value and Member’s Mark plain and chocolate milk, which will be sold in 600 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and northern Kentucky.

Construction of the building is expected to begin in July with equipment installed beginning in the first quarter of 2017.
