Gov. Pete Ricketts was among those announcing the expansion of Hendrix-ISA in Grand Island.
Ricketts says Nebraska won over fierce competition from other states.
“At the end of the day, it came down to our people. And the quality of the people here and the opportunity that Hendrix-ISA saw was to have great Nebraskans helping their company succeed,” Ricketts tells Nebraska Radio Network.
Hendrix, which is based in Pennsylvania, says the investment could total close to $50 million with the main plant, plus supporting facilities.
