VIDEO: Cow Health Company to Build Plant in Jerome
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- A California company specializing in cattle health plans to build a facility in Jerome. The City of Jerome and the Southern Idaho Economic Development Organization announced that Specialty Sales LLC, out of Fresno, will build a 30,000 plus square foot facility. Specialty Sales centers their business on hoof health products for dairy cows.
The company will invest more than $2 million dollars in the building. It will be located near Idaho Milk Products in Jerome’s Northside Development Industrial Park. “We are excited to build our second operation in Jerome, Idaho,” said Greg Petersen, President of Specialty Sales.
“Jerome is an ideal location offering close freeway access, skilled labor and the key to our business, rail spur access. Our Jerome facility will reduce customer response time and transportation costs, increase service frequency and improve the overall health of dairy cows for our customers in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Nevada. Jerome is a great location and we’re pleased to join this growing community,” Petersen said.
Construction of a rail spur and buildings are expected to begin soon. The facility should be completed sometime in the Summer of 2015.
