Leprino Foods Co., Denver, Colo., announced plans to invest over $15 million to expand its Roswell, N.M., manufacturing facility. The expansion and construction of a refrigerated/freezer warehouse will add five new jobs and retain a minimum of 552 jobs on site.

"Roswell has been an ideal location for our production for the past three decades, providing both a thriving community for our employees to live and work and close proximity to the dedicated farmers who supply the high-quality milk that is the chief ingredient in our products," says Robert Tuttrup, vice president and general manager, Roswell plant. "We value our partnership with the state of New Mexico, and are very appreciative of their investment in support of our expansion."  

The Roswell plant produces dairy-based products, including mozzarella cheese, whey protein, lactose and more.
