Celebrating 50 Years
Purina's manufacturing facility in Clinton, Iowa celebrated its milestone 50th anniversary with a celebration for employees, their families and retirees in August.
Since 1969, Clinton has been home to a dry pet food/treats facility that plays an important role in Purina's network of 20 factories across the United States. Clinton has become a hub for innovation and design, testing, and launching new products. In the last 50 years, more than 190 products have been produced in Clinton, and the factory is also the sole producer of Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets dry pet food.
The Clinton factory commemorated its anniversary on Aug. 5.
I saw current employees and retirees come together and talk about how the ways of working have changed and how we've improved. It was amazing to see the transformation, passion and comradery. The sense of pride and level of ownership amongst associates was inspiring.
