Unilever, one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies, announced that it will expand its facility in Jefferson City, investing $25 million in a new warehouse on the current property. The company’s expansion will enhance its current warehouse operations to help optimize its North American logistics network.

“We’re thrilled to see Unilever continuing to grow right here in Missouri’s capital city,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Our state’s low costs, superior infrastructure, and skilled workforce continue to set us apart as a prime business location for world-class employers. We look forward to the benefits that Unilever’s ongoing success will provide for Missourians in the Jefferson City area as it continues to invest in the community.”

Unilever’s Jefferson City location, in operation since 1966, employs more than 400 workers and manufactures liquid hair and body care products that include well-known brands such as Dove, Nexxus, TRESemmé, and Vaseline. As part of its expansion, the company will add an automated warehouse solution that is integrated with its factory to support shipments and repack operations. The building project is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2024 and will be completed by the end of 2025.
