Solid Gold Pet Opens New Corporate Headquarters in St. Louis
Solid Gold Pet is bringing new jobs to St. Louis as the company opens its new corporate headquarters in Chesterfield, Mo., and increases its operations team.
“After celebrating more than 40 years as the leading premium, holistic pet food company, we are thrilled to start the next chapter of Solid Gold Pet in St. Louis,” said Bob Rubin, CEO and president. “Our supply chain and manufacturing facilities are also located in the Midwest. Housing our corporate offices in St. Louis will allow Solid Gold Pet to centralize our support for our customers and vendors, which means increased efficiency and productivity.”
Solid Gold Pet will hire more than 20 employees over the next several months to support operations at its new dog-friendly headquarters in the nation’s pet food industry capital. The company is moving into St. Louis from Greenville, S.C., in coordinated waves to avoid any disruptions to retail and vendor partners, Rubin said.
“At Solid Gold Pet, our priority is servicing our customers and, ultimately, providing pet owners and their pets with holistic pet nutrition for a healthy, happy life,” Rubin said. “Our focus remains the same during this exciting time.”
“With our Kansas City Animal Health Corridor making up more than 56 percent of the world’s total animal health research, diagnostics and pet food sales, Missouri is at the center of animal health innovation,” said Gov. Jay Nixon. “Solid Gold Pet’s decision to join Missouri’s growing community of animal-focused companies further solidifies our global leadership in this industry while creating high-paying jobs for families in our state.”
The City of Chesterfield, Missouri Department of Economic Development, Missouri Partnership, St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and St. Louis Regional Chamber assisted with Solid Gold’s relocation efforts.
