ANDERSON, Ind. -- Nestle USA says it will spend $72 million to add a new production line to the central Indiana plant where it makes several beverage products.

The expansion project will start up a seventh production line at the factory along Interstate 69 in Anderson.

The company says it will be making more of its Boost and Carnation Breakfast Essentials drinks at the plant. Nestle has also been making Nesquik and Coffee-Mate at the plant that opened in 2009.

Nestle spokesman Chris Lloyd tells The Herald Bulletin that the company isn't announcing whether any jobs will be added with the new production line. Lloyd says the new line is expected to be in operation next year.

More than 700 people now work at the plant.
