Diamond Pet Foods, a leading manufacturer of quality pet foods, announced today that it plans to build a new manufacturing facility and has selected the city of Rushville, Indiana, as its preferred location. The plant would bring more than 170 new jobs to the area by 2023. “With its proximity to suppliers and customers and access to a high-quality workforce, this facility will allow us to continue offering quality pet foods at competitive prices,” said Mark Schell, executive vice president at Diamond Pet Foods. “Diamond is family owned and we look forward to adding to our family in a state that’s considered to be ‘the crossroads of America.’”Founded in 1970, Diamond Pet Foods, a privately held company, works with quality ingredients to provide families a wide range of pet food formulas at a price they can feel good about. The more than $200 million investment will create a 700,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility, including machinery and equipment.
