SPF, a developer of palatability enhancers for petfood, officially began commercial operations in its new Guymon, Oklahoma, USA, facility. After several rounds of qualification trials, the company began shipping from Guymon in April.
SPF West, the company's third plant in the USA, will allow it to better serve customers in the west and southwest regions.
“We are excited that our SPF West facility is operating as demand for our products continues to grow,” said Dave Berry, general manager of SPF North America Inc. “Guymon, Oklahoma, was selected for its central location, access to suppliers and the positive support from state and local officials. The plant incorporates best-in-class quality standards to ensure safe and high performing products for our customers.”
