EOC Naturals announced plans to locate a new, all-natural pet treat manufacturing facility in Allendale County. The development is projected to bring $3.3 million in capital investment and create 76 new jobs over the next five years.
Manufacturing high-quality, food-grade pet treats since 1989, the company will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019. Headquartered in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada, EOC Naturals uses state-of-the-art technology to produce a range of products for pets of all sizes under the Eurocan Pet Products brand, as well as for some of the country's largest retailers.
Located at 3405 Fairfax Allendale Highway in Allendale, S.C., the company's new manufacturing facility is expected to come online in the second quarter of 2019.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $500,000 Rural Infrastructure Fund grant to Allendale County to assist with costs associated with the project.
"EOC Naturals' facility in Allendale, S.C. will allow us to produce North America's finest pet treats in a location that will enable us to reach our growing markets in the U.S.," said Mauro Trinchini, EOC Naturals founder and president. "We appreciate the support and welcome we have received from Allendale County, Southern Carolina Alliance, and the State of South Carolina. We look forward to opening our production facility in 2019."
