Cosmos Corporation, pet product manufacturer, broke ground earlier this year for its new headquarters in O’Fallon, Missouri. The new facility is around 190,000 square feet and will house office space, production and distribution. Currently employing more than 120 employees, the expansion is expected to create approximately 60 new full-time jobs.
According to media reports, the corporation provides a variety of pet grooming, dental, natural flea and tick products under its TropiClean and Naturel Promise brand lines. More than 150 products are now available at various retailers in 65 countries.
Officials claim the expansion will also include the company’s non-profit organization, Gifts of Love International. A portion of Cosmos Corporation’s proceeds will be donated to Gifts of Love to support the poor, orphaned and needy around the globe. Referring to various reports, this partnership allowed Cosmos to build a children’s home in Guatemala and feed more than 800 children a day in Haiti.
“Our company started with the desire to help others all around the world. The expansion allows us to maintain this culture that we’ve established within our company,” said Cosmos Corporation CEO, Landon Hobson. “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.”
