In The Region:

The Nestle Corporation broke ground today for a new product technology center near its facility in suburban Cleveland.

The $53 million project in Solon will add about 40 new research jobs when it’s completed next year.  The international food company currently employs nearly 2,000 people in Solon. Gov. John Kasich was on hand for the ground breaking, and vowed to help Nestle grow in Ohio.

“We’ll help you train the workers, we’ll help you with research though our universities, we’ll help you move your goods, and we won’t overburden you with regulations.”

The new facility will help the company produce healthier products.

Nestle opened its Solon facility in 1968, and also has Ohio operations in Dublin and Marysville, where about 400 people are employed.

Listener Comments:

I am impressed by Nestle's dedication to continuously improve their products and their dedication to Solon. They are an outstanding organization!
