Cosmos Corp., a pet product manufacturer located in Wentzville, MO, has broken ground on its new headquarters in O’Fallon, MO.

The 190,000-square-foot facility will house office space, production and distribution and triple the company’s current space, according to a press release.

“It is always an honor when companies choose to stay and grow in Missouri,” said Luke Holtschneider, deputy director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. “Cosmos is a great company that cares deeply about our global community, and we appreciate their continued investment in our state.”

Cosmos provides pet grooming, dental and natural flea and tick products under its TropiClean and Naturel Promise brand lines. The brands are now available at major retailers, reaching a global audience in 65 countries and including over 150 products.

Cosmos currently employs more than 120 employees. The expansion will create about 60 new full-time jobs in the St. Louis area. Future job openings at the new headquarters primarily include positions in manufacturing and administration.

The expansion will also house the company’s faith-based nonprofit organization Gifts of Love International. A portion of its revenue helps Gifts of Love support the poor, widowed, orphaned and needy around the world. Through this organization, Cosmos has built a children’s home in Guatemala and helps feed over 800 children a day in Haiti. The organization also helps provide service dogs for autistic children in the U.S and supports a horse ranch in Missouri for children in need.

“Our company started with the desire to help others all around the world, and the expansion allows us to maintain this culture that we’ve established within our company,” said Cosmos Corporation CEO Landon Hobson. “We’re excited to continue our growth here in Missouri at our new O’Fallon headquarters. We appreciate the excellent business climate and workforce that the state of Missouri and St. Louis area has to offer and look forward to bringing even more jobs to the region.”
