Nestle Plans Product Technology Center in Ohio

Nestle S.A. will invest $53 million to establish a new building that will expand the existing R&D facility in Solon, Ohio.

The new center will be designated as a global Product Technology Center (PTC), dedicated to frozen and chilled foods research, and will serve Nestle’s businesses worldwide.

The new building will be located on 18 acres in a park-like setting off of Solon’s Cannon Road. The glass-faced facility will house offices and labs for approximately 100 scientific, professional and technical staff.
