Pestell Group Inc. Christens Warehouse Expansion
The Pestell Group Inc., which makes and distributes small animal bedding, cat litter as well as feed ingredients, celebrated the grand opening of its 65,000-square-foot warehouse expansion.
Don Pestell, owner, Pestell Group Inc., did the honors as he participated in a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the new warehouse wing at the company’s New Hamburg, Ontario, campus.
The celebration continued with employees being treated to a barbeque.
The additional space will be used to support the growth of Pestell Pet Products and Pestell Minerals and Ingredients, subsidiaries of Pestell Group Inc.

In total, the Pestell Group has 200,000 square feet of warehousing and production facilities situated at its New Hamburg headquarters as well as a smattering of warehouses at key locations in North America.
