(KLZA)--A Colorado-based company plans to open a plant in Falls City.

Falls City Economic Development and Growth Enterprise has announced that Great West – Teeuwissen plans to open a location in Falls City.

Great West – Teeuwissen will process, export, import and trade animal by-products serving pet food and animal feed industries. 

The facility will be in the Falls City Industrial Park at 404 Pacific Street, in the former Gold Star Sausage plant. Plans call for $1.7-million in capital investment for acquisition of the building and the purchase of equipment.  20 new full-time jobs are to be created.

Company president Doug Haycock and members of his management team have made several site visits to the Falls City facility.  This will be a third location for the company. They also operate facilities in York, Nebraska and Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

The company is hoping to advance to the final stages of development in the coming weeks. No official date for the opening of the business has been set.
