Private brand pet products supplier Red Collar Pet Foods is expanding its manufacturing plant in Oklahoma, adding 85,000 square feet of warehouse space to an existing building that will help meet high-demand and comes on the heels of a recent expansion of its packaging capabilities.
Construction is expected to begin at the end of the year on the Clinton, Okla.-based plant.
“The Clinton plant continues to be one of our fastest-growing plants in Red Collar Pet Foods’ coast-to-coast network,” said Greg Wolking, chief operating officer, Red Collar Pet Foods. “When completed, the warehouse expansion enables capacity for future growth and additional hiring.”
Headquartered in Franklin, Tenn., the company owns six manufacturing plants across the United States, employing more than 800 people.
The company was created in 2018 as a result of Arbor Investments’ acquisition of Mars Petcare’s Exclusive Brands business. In February 2019, the newly rebranded company acquired Joplin, Mo.-based Hampshire Pet Products, a leading manufacturer of baked and cold-formed pet treats.
The acquisition makes Red Collar the largest private label and contract manufacturers of dog and cat pet treats in North America, according to the company.
