Scott Pet Products of Rockville, Ind., has begun a multi-facility expansion program set for fall completion.

Specifically, new milling operations at its Rockville facility will double Scott's capacity to clean, mix and store wild bird seed—already a major sector for the company. Also, the Rockville's warehouse system will increase to 200,000 square feet with the addition of a 40,000-square-foot distribution center that will allow Scott to better manage its shipping and distribution.

Scott also plans to expand its 60,000-square-foot Tishomingo, Okla., natural pet products plant to 80,000-square-feet with a larger freezer facility.

The expansion plan follows a record sales year in 2003 and five consecutive years of beating sales forecasts, says company president Michael Bassett.
