Cat Food Manufacturer To Relocate To Cheyenne

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – A cat food and litter manufacturer plans to move from Colorado to Wyoming.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Precious Cat Inc., now based in Englewood, Colorado, announced plans to relocate Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Products to the Swan Ranch Business Park in Cheyenne, Wyoming, by 2019.

The company will build a 150,000-square-foot (13,935-square-meter) facility and expects to hire 20-30 local employees. Construction is expected to begin by the end of this year.

The move will provide land for rail service and more space than is available at the company’s current location, as well as the availability of Wyoming’s high-quality bentonite, an absorbent clay used as the litter’s main ingredient.
