Intersand expanded its North American manufacturing footprint by opening a new U.S. headquarters in Windsor, Co.
The rail-served production and distribution facility allows the global cat litter producer to increase its supply chain efficiency to support North American and international demand. Additionally, the state-of-the-art, fully automated facility uses next generation operating systems with advanced manufacturing technology, developed in-house, jointly by Intersand and partners.
Located in Great Western Industrial Park in Colorado, the new facility provides a strategic geographic presence within the U.S., near the Wyoming main sources of bentonite clay; enhancing its raw material supply chain efficiency. Furthermore, the facility’s rail service and connection to Class I railroads by Great Western Railway of Colorado provide safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transportation of raw materials and completed products.
“This impressive new facility provides us a key U.S. distribution hub to serve our rapidly expanding markets, particularly our growth in the U.S., while also creating timely, local jobs,” said Stéphane Chevigny, president and CEO of Intersand. “It’s an exciting, complimentary plant to our current facilities in Canada and offers us the opportunity to keep increasing the innovation and digital transformation of all of our plants. Projects like this are mobilizing for our customers, our employees and our industry.”
