April 12, 2018; Feedstuffs

Wisconsin-based Agropur Inc. plans to expand $21.3 million to expand its existing local facility in Wyoming, Mich., resulting in the creation of 62 new jobs over the next three years. The plant mainly produces various shelf-stable dairy products that are distributed across the country.

… “Agropur’s decision to invest $21.3 million and create more than 60 jobs is a tremendous win for west Michigan and the region’s growing food processing sector,” said Thad Rieder, senior business development manager at The Right Place. “By partnering with the city of Wyoming, West Michigan Works!, Grand Rapids Community College and MEDC, The Right Place has been able to coordinate talent, training and financial tools to boost Agropur’s internal return for this important expansion.”
