Walmart Milk Processing Facility Announced for Robinson, Texas

The facility is expected to open in 2026.

ROBINSON, Texas – Governor Greg Abbott announced Thursday that Robinson, Texas is getting a new $350 million Walmart milk processing facility and is expected to bring nearly 400 new jobs to the area.

“Walmart’s new processing facility in Robinson is exciting news for Texas, creating millions in investments for the local economy and hundreds of new, good-paying jobs for hardworking Texans in Central Texas,” Abbott said in a news release.

In the press release, Bruce Heckman, vice president of Walmart Manufacturing, said the milk will be high quality and sourced primarily from Texas dairy farmers. It will process and bottle a variety of milk options, including whole, 1%, 2%, skim and chocolate milk, Walmart said in its own press release.

The milk produced at the plant will help supply more than 750 Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs throughout Texas, as well as in Oklahoma, Louisiana and parts of Arkansas and Mississippi, Walmart added.

“This monumental investment is the first of its kind in both size and value and heralds a transformative era for Robinson,” said Robinson Mayor Bert Echterling. “Walmart’s decision to plant roots here is a testament to the strength of our local economy, the dedication of our workforce and the strategic benefits our city offers.”

The new milk processing facility will be Walmart’s third owned and operated location. The first opened in 2018 in Fort Wayne, Indiana and another in Valdosta, Georgia, expected to open in 2025.

The Robinson facility is expected to open in 2026.
