DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) — State officials say Develey Mustard & Condiments Corp. is bringing its first North American production facility to Dyersburg.
Officials said Thursday that Develey will invest $20 million in the new operation, creating 150 jobs in Dyer County over the next five years.
Based in Unterhaching, Germany, Develey makes mustards, dressings and sauces, exporting to more than 50 countries. Develey distributes Tabasco, Kikkoman, Patak's, Del Monte and Gatorade products in several countries.
Officials said renovations on a 100,000 square-foot facility will begin in April and are expected to be complete by the end of the year.
Michael Durach, the company's chairman of the board, said in a statement released by the state that Develey evaluated sites in four states and chose Dyersburg after "analyzing all numbers and considering the community."
