The Mead Johnson Nutrition facility in Evansville will be expanding with a $25 million investment from its parent, United Kingdom-based Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC. RB acquired Mead Johnson a year ago and plans to add 95 southwest Indiana jobs over the next five years.
The investment, the company says, will boost capacity at the 44-acre, more than 100 year-old property. RB Health Senior Vice President of Research and Development Steve Braun says "in addition to investing $11 million dollars to improve operational efficiencies and more effectively utilize buildings located at its 1.2 million-square-foot manufacturing site, RB’s rehabilitation project will create new quality job opportunities in southwest Indiana."
RB has been offered up to $1.25 million in conditional tax incentives from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. The Mead Johnson operation currently employs nearly 900 and RB Site Director of the Evansville Supply Center Art Pike says "the Evansville facility is a significant manufacturing site for RB, and we are honored to continue the legacy of Mead Johnson as a partner in this community."
