Champion Petfoods has partnered with Gray Construction to expand its production, and the design-build firm will construct Champion's third kitchen, assuming responsibility for the design and construction of the new custom-fitted kitchens.
"We are very proud to invest in Kentucky's people and agriculture," said Frank Burdzy, president and CEO of Champion. "Our new custom-fitted kitchens will advance our biologically appropriate and fresh regional ingredient foods. With their rich family heritage and food experience, Gray is the perfect partner."
