A holistic pet food brand is moving its headquarters to the St. Louis area.
Solid Gold Pet has announced it plans to open its new corporate headquarters in Chesterfield, Mo.
The company, which is currently based in Greenville, S.C., also plans to hire more than 20 new employees as it increases its operations team.
"We are thrilled to start the next chapter of Solid Gold Pet in St. Louis,” said Bob Rubin, CEO and president of Solid Gold Pet. “Our supply chain and manufacturing facilities are also located in the Midwest. Housing our corporate offices in St. Louis will allow Solid Gold Pet to centralize our support for our customers and vendors, which means increased efficiency and productivity.”
“With our Kansas City Animal Health Corridor making up more than 56 percent of the world’s total animal health research, diagnostics and pet food sales, Missouri is at the center of animal health innovation,” said Gov. Jay Nixon.
The company's move will be coordinated in waves to avoid any disruptions with retail and vendor partners.
