ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — Leaders of a central Indiana city are trying to persuade Nestle to pick it for a new production line that could add about 100 jobs.
The Anderson City Council on Thursday gave preliminary approval to a $14 million tax abatement request from Nestle on $166 million in new equipment that would be added to the company's plant along Interstate 69.
The Herald Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/NM5IgA ) Nestle officials in Switzerland are considering a few U.S. sites for the new production line. Anderson plant manager April Blackmore says she isn't sure when a decision will be made.
City officials say the plant that opened in 2008 now has about 660 workers and has space for the new line without an expansion.
Nestle makes and distributes Nesquik and Coffee-Mate at the Anderson plant.
