Zoetis is spending $64.5 million on the expansion of its manufacturing and supply facilities. Construction on the project should start later this month and be completed by early 2019.

The project is expected to create up to 45 manufacturing jobs over three years and could create 15 more jobs in the two years after that. You can find information about working at Zoetis on the company’s website.
