Cheyenne, Wyoming (August 8, 2018) – Cheyenne LEADS is pleased to announce that Precious Cat, Inc will be relocating their Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Products manufacturing and distribution facility to Cheyenne.
The move is being driven by the need for rail service and more space than is available at the company’s current location in Englewood, Colorado. According to Dr. Bruce Elsey, President of Precious Cat, Inc., “We chose Cheyenne because, in addition to the availability of rail and rail-served land, we appreciate the work ethic and values present in a town the size of Cheyenne.”
The availability of high quality bentonite, the main ingredient used in cat litter, was also a factor, says Elsey. “There is nothing better than Wyoming bentonite.”
Cheyenne LEADS began working with Precious Cat in October of 2016. The company will employ 20 – 30 employees and plans to build a 150,000 sq. ft. building located on 33 acres in the in the Swan Ranch Business Park, owned by Granite Peak Development. Construction planned to begin by the end of 2018.
“We are thrilled that Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Products will relocate to Cheyenne,” said Randy Bruns, CEO of Cheyenne LEADS. “The company produces a high-quality product from Wyoming materials and has a reputation as a top employer.”
