A California-based nutritional and health products firm is moving ahead with plans for a major plant and warehouse southwest of Dallas.
Sunrider International and its Earth Root Holdings LLC firm have been working for months on a new operation in Midlothian in Ellis County.
The Torrance-based consumer products firm bought an 87-acre development site this week off U.S. Highway 67 in the Midlothian Business Park.
“The company closed yesterday, and the incentives were approved by the city on the eighth of September,” Kyle Kinateder, who heads Midlothian Economic Development Corp, said in an email.
The land for the development was acquired from the economic development corporation.
Sunrider International plans to employ several hundred people in its new Midlothian plant, which is targeted to open in 2022.
Earlier this year, the company filed plans with the state that call for building a more than 1 million-square-foot industrial facility at Miller Road
