Nestle Maintenance A-Electrician in Saint Louis, Missouri

We planted our roots in St. Louis home back in 1894. Since then, we’ve expanded our manufacturing to 21 facilities across the United States and St. Louis has grown into what some would call a “hidden gem”. This “big city with a small-town feel” has everything you need and more— a rich culture with outstanding schools and healthcare, an affordable cost of living and a neighborhood for every lifestyle. Hours from other major metro’s or minutes from a bustling downtown, calm parks and outdoors—join us in calling St. Louis our home!

The Nestlé Purina Support Center manufactures, repairs, inventories and tests the equipment used to make pet products around the world, while protecting the proprietary nature of the fabrication of Nestlé Purina production equipment. The facility utilizes a modern Machine Shop, a Sheet Metal and Welding Fabrication Shop, which have allowed the site to build a sizable spare parts inventory to provide even faster service to NPPC Factories.

As a Maintenance A-Electrician, you will be responsible for repairing, replacing, installing, and maintaining facility components using trade skills required of a Journeyman Electrician. Although your role is critical to our continuous improvement and success, so is your work-life balance. Work isn’t all there is to life and we wouldn’t have it any other way! So, if you’re up for the challenge we dare to expand your career in the world of manufacturing, join our Purina Family. We’ll always challenge you to think: “What’s Next?”
