Chicago-based Fairlife LLC says it plans to invest about $96.3 million in an expansion at its milk processing plant in Coopersville and create 100 new jobs over the next two years, according to a statement.

The Michigan Strategic Fund approved $9.34 million in incentives to encourage the company to expand its operations in West Michigan. Included in the package was $2.4 million in Community Development Block Grants for infrastructure improvements to the city of Coopersville’s wastewater system at the site. The city will contribute $384,000 toward the improvements.

Fairlife, formerly Fair Oaks Farm Brands LLC, produces concentrated and powder milk-based nutritional products and opened its Coopersville plant in 2011 at the former Delphi factory.

The company plans to leverage the incentives to buy new equipment and hire new people via the Ottawa County Michigan Works!, according to a statement from Lakeshore Advantage, which helped the company secure incentive package.
