Virginia governor Ralph Northam welcomed an investment of $182 million from Purina PetCare in King William County as the manufacturer plans to increase capacity at an existing production facility.
Purina will add 138,000 square feet to enhance business operations in the U.S. and Canada for its Tidy Cats litter products, including the LightWeight formulas such as Free & Clean Unscented. The project will also include an additional 100,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space leading to more efficient logistics management and expedited delivery of products to pets and pet owners. The factory expansion is expected to be completed by late 2023.
“The investment in Virginia provides an exciting opportunity to strengthen our operations in King William,” said Travis Gumbs, factory manager for Purina. “We are committed to delivering the innovative litter solutions cat owners trust, with a continued focus on safety and sustainability in our operations. We are proud to be part of the King William community and look forward to many more opportunities to make a positive impact for pets and people.”
