LEWISBURG, OH — Royal Canin North America, a subsidiary of Mars Inc., plans to invest $390 million to build a new factory in Lewisburg, OH.

The Lewisburg location will join Royal Canin’s five other manufacturing sites across the U.S. and Canada. The news comes on the heels of the company’s recent announcement of a $200 million expansion at its Lebanon, TN, facility.

“As industry leaders in pet health, we have a tremendous responsibility to make a healthier life for pets through our tailored nutrition, in partnership with pet professionals who share our same purpose,” said Cecile Coutens, president, Royal Canin North America. “We recognize that pets make our life better and this has been more evident recently with the support pets have provided families throughout the pandemic. Our new site will help ensure we can serve more pet owners and bring our nutrition to more cats and dogs than ever before.”

Construction of the 450,000-square-foot-facility is set to begin in May and is expected to start operations in the second half of 2023, bringing more than 224 jobs to the area. It will manufacture Royal Canin and Eukanuba health and nutrition with both dog and cat food product lines.

Royal Canin currently operates its Pet Health Nutrition Center, a global research and development hub for the company, in Lewisburg. The factory will be located on the same property.
