Raleigh, N.C. – The Crump Group Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of all-natural, limited ingredient pet treats will locate its first production facility in the United States in Nash County, creating 160 jobs, Governor Roy Cooper announced on Tuesday. The company will invest $13.2 million to outfit a new manufacturing and distribution center in Nashville.
“Rural North Carolina offers manufacturing companies many advantages as a business location,” said Governor Cooper. “The Crump Group is the latest international company to tap our diverse workforce, strong transportation networks, and strategic, east coast location to gain traction in the U.S. market.”
The Crump Group, a family-run business headquartered in Ontario, produces a wide variety of limited ingredient pet treats utilizing best-in-class processing and food safety standards. Products are sold in pet specialty, grocery, and mass supermarkets under a variety of brands and the strong demand for these minimally processed treats has enabled the company to become one the largest producer of air-dried pet treats in Canada. North Carolina sweet potatoes have been a key ingredient in several of the company’s products for many years. The new facility in Nash County offers streamlined access to this important raw material and provides The Crump Group with a strategic east-coast location to grow its business in the United States.
“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to make North Carolina our home in the USA”, said Margot Crump, CEO of The Crump Group. “Knowing that “Made in the USA” resonates with American consumers provided a great deal of incentive to continue our growth trajectory with this expansion. When considering options as to where to locate, it was an easy decision thanks to the state’s proactive approach in attracting new business.”
