In Their Words

The decision to build our second milk plant in Columbia culminates several years of research and diligence to determine the optimal location for a new processing operation. Columbia was the best choice because it offers a location that expands and improves the efficiency of our total supply chain, from organic feed, to milk, to consumer. Central Missouri also offers a great workforce and attractive access to major interstate highways. We are excited to break ground on our new facility later this spring.

— Marc Peperzak / Aurora Organic Dairy

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.

— Bob Rubin / Solid Gold Pet

We initially considered Springfield based on its proximity to our farms and infrastructure, but we’ve come to appreciate and embrace the community’s talented workforce, diligent coordination and authentic partnership. The people of Springfield are truly exceptional.

The work ethic here is really good. People come in and work hard. They’re used to working hard before we hire them.

I've lived in a lot of places, and there is a difference here in how people conduct themselves. There is a strong work ethic and friendliness that I haven't found elsewhere.
