Petfood packaging manufacturer Weatherchem recently released its yearly summary for 2011, in which Weatherchem says it had the most successful year in the company's 40-year history.
During 2011, Weatherchem experienced growth of 21 percent and an employment expansion of 15 percent.
The company says it used the year as a platform for infrastructure and plant investments to drive continued revenue growth, among which include an expansion of the company's flagship product line, NutraGenII closures, and the 43mm FlapMate line; a redesigned new product development and innovation strategy; installation of a new ERP system to handle the company's expansion in plant production and volume; and acceptance into the Drug-Free Workplace program offered by the state of Ohio, USA, where the company is headquartered.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
