Purina expands pet food plant in Flagstaff

A Purina pet food plant in Flagstaff, Arizona, USA will boost production by 20%, add 50 new warehouse and production workers and build an addition on its warehouse.

Company officials say work on the 91,000-square-foot warehouse expansion should begin in January, with the warehouse expected to open in early 2009.

Plant manager Bill Calloway says the expansion will help the facility better serve customers in Western states and meet added demand. He says the company's decision is a vote of confidence in workers and the Flagstaff area.

The plant produces 53 different products and puts out 220,000 tons of pet food a year. It ships pet food to several Western states, Hawaii and northern Mexico.
