An organization with a major native presence is being honored for its financial growth efforts elsewhere in Kansas
Governor Laura Kelly talked about Hill’s Pet Nutrition and the state’s Department of Commerce for receiving a Business Facilities 2021 Deal of the Year Impact Award in specialty manufacturing. Governor Kelly says Hill’s is a “game-changer” in rising the Animal Health Corridor, which stretches from Kansas City west to Manhattan and south to Lyon County.
The award is for Hill’s work to construct a producing plant in Tonganoxie. Hill’s has been established in Emporia since late 2010, when it opened an 85-acre, 500,000 square-foot facility in southeast Emporia.
