RB investing $25 million to redevelop Evansville building


Global health and hygiene firm RB plans to invest $25 million to update the Mead Johnson Nutrition facility in the city of Evansville.

The investment will create 95 new jobs over the next five years, the company said in a press statement.

“In addition to investing $11 million dollars to improve operational efficiencies and more effectively utilize buildings located at its 1.2 million-sq. ft. manufacturing site, RB’s rehabilitation project will create new quality job opportunities in southwest Indiana,” Steve Braun, senior vice-president of RB Health, research and development, said in the statement.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered the company up to $1.25 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans.

Evansville City Council is considering additional incentives at the request of Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville.
