Missouri’s Animal Health Industry Is Going Underground

The Hunt Midwest SubTropolis, in Kansas City, Missouri, has emerged as a leading logistics location for the animal health industry, according to a new article on MetroWireMedia.com. Over the past 12 months, three animal health companies – Virbac, Ceva Animal Health, and IodiTech – have announced new or expanded warehouse and distribution operations in SubTropolis bringing its veterinary industry footprint to more than 250,000 sq. ft.

“SubTropolis is the total package for animal health companies and their unique requirements for product safety and climate control, providing significant operational cost efficiencies,” said Hunt Midwest President and CEO Ora Reynolds.

More than half of the world’s animal health industry is represented in the Kansas City region, and pet food companies with their North American headquarters in Missouri generate almost $30 billion in revenue each year.

“By choosing this Midwest location, we’re better aligning ourselves within the animal health industry, and we’re excited to continue building a strong partnership with the KC Animal Health Corridor,” said Paul R. Hays, president & CEO, Virbac Corporation.

The SubTropolis is a 55,000,000 sq. ft. manmade limestone cave that has been renovated into an underground business complex offering a safe and secure location for companies to grow.

Other companies within SubTropolis include Adrian Steel, Knapheide Manufacturing Co., Ground Effects, Midway Ford, Auto Truck Group, AER Manufacturing, Caseco, Grupo Antolin, Leggett & Platt CVP, XPO Logistics and Clore Automotive to name a few.
