Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer Meijer signaled its intent to build the company’s first Ohio-based dairy production facility.

The new Tipp City plant will employ 103 people, who will work to help produce milk and a variety of other dairy products for Meijer stores. Meijer operates 204 supercenters and grocery stores in the Midwest, and employs more than 60,000 people across Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan.

“Meijer is very pleased to continue our investment and growth in Ohio,” says Rick Keyes, executive vice president of supply chain operations and manufacturing. “With 42 stores and a major distribution complex, Ohio is a very important state for us. This new facility in Tipp City will help support our continued growth as a company as well as our continued success in Ohio.”
