RALEIGH, NC – The Crump Group Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of pet treats, will locate its first production facility in the U.S. in Nash County, NC, creating 160 jobs. The company will invest $13.2 million to outfit a new manufacturing and distribution center in Nashville.

“Eastern North Carolina is perfect for this Canadian company’s first manufacturing facility in the United States,” said NC Gov. Roy Cooper. “We have great workers, an excellent transportation network, the best sweet potatoes in the world along with other raw materials, and we love our pets.”

The Crump Group, a family-run business headquartered in Ontario, produces limited ingredient pet treats sold in pet specialty, grocery and mass supermarkets under a variety of brands. North Carolina sweet potatoes have been a key ingredient in several of the company’s products. The Nash County facility “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,” according to a press release.

“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.”

The Crump Group’s project in North Carolina will be facilitated by a Job Development Investment Grant approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee. During the 12-year term of the grant, the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by $650.5 million. Using a formula that takes into account the new tax revenues generated by the new jobs, the JDIG agreement authorizes the potential reimbursement to the company of up to $1.64 million spread over 12 years. Over those 12 years, the state will see net direct revenue generated by the project in excess of $17.2 million.
