Post-Holdings Plans West Jefferson, Ohio, Production Center

Post Holdings Inc., a leading consumer packaged goods company, plans to open a new 215,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in West Jefferson, Ohio. The $86 million project is expected to create 200 new jobs over the next four years.

Located at 2 Walker Way, the facility will be managed by Michael Foods Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Post Holdings, Inc.

“We are excited to begin construction on our West Jefferson property,” said Steve Schonhoff, Senior Vice President of Integrated Supply Chain, Michael Foods. “The JobsOhio team and the developer Fed One Dublin, LLC have been great to work with throughout the development process. The location is a terrific addition to our supply chain.”

The intent of the facility is to produce protein drinks for BellRing Brands, Inc., which owns the Premier Protein brand. Its centralized location will help the company better serve North American customers and provide capacity for continued success in the fast-growing protein beverage category. Post’s investment will go towards construction, machinery and equipment.

“Post Holdings’ new Ohio facility is estimated to bring more than 200 new jobs to the Columbus Region,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “The West Jefferson facility will help the company meet rapidly growing demand in the North American market.”
