Glanbia Foods Plans $15M ID Expansion
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Officials with the cheese manufacturer Glanbia Foods say the company is spending up to $15 million to build its corporate headquarters and innovation center in Twin Falls.
The expansion, announced Friday, is expected to add 100 jobs when the facility opens in March 2013, with plans to expand to 150.
Glanbia president and CEO Jeff Williams told The Times-News (http://bit.ly/wKDYVX ) that city officials have been talking with the company about the expansion for the past five years. Williams said the company was excited to move forward with the project.
The plans call for a 35,000-square-foot office complex and a 14,000-square-foot research center. Williams said the center will give Glanbia employees and customers the chance to research new product ideas. Glanbia currently operates plants in Twin Falls, Gooding and Richfield.
