Peruvian-Based Company Comes To Tyler

A company based out of Latin America is now hiring right here in East Texas.

The Santa Natura company announced the opening of their offices and distribution center today.

It sells all-natural plant extracts from Peru. The store, to be located on Troup Highway, is expected to open in a month.

Between that and their distribution center, the company hopes to employ 150 East Texans.

Brent Lemons, Santa Natura owner, says "We decided this would be a great place, it's centrally located to the United States.  The product is shipped and it can be shipped as easily from here as anywhere else in the world."

Lemons says as the company grows, even more jobs will become available.
