Cosmos Corporation, a pet product manufacturer currently located in Wentzville Mo. will break ground on June 7, 2019, in O’Fallon Mo. for their new headquarters. The new facility, around 190,000 square feet, will house office space, production, and distribution and triple the company’s current space.
Cosmos Corporation provides a variety of pet grooming, dental and natural flea and tick products under its TropiClean and Naturél Promise brand lines. The brands are now available at nearly all major retailers reaching a global audience in 65 countries and including over 150 products.
The expansion will also house their faith-based nonprofit organization, Gifts of Love International. A generous portion of their revenue helps Gifts of Love support the poor, widowed, orphaned and needy all around the world. Through this organization, Cosmos has built a children’s home in Guatemala and helps feed over 800 children a day in Haiti. The organization also helps provide service dogs for autistic children in the U.S as well as supporting a horse ranch in Missouri for children in need.
“Our company started with the desire to help others all around the world, and the expansion allows us to maintain this culture that we’ve established within our company, says Cosmos Corporation CEO, Landon Hobson, “We’re excited to continue our growth here in Missouri at our new O’Fallon headquarters. We appreciate the excellent business climate and workforce that the state of Missouri and St. Louis area has to offer and look forward to bringing even more jobs to the region.
“It is always an honor when companies choose to stay and grow in Missouri,” said Missouri Department of Economic Development Deputy Director Luke Holtschneider. “Cosmos is a great company that cares deeply about our global community, and we appreciate their continued investment in our state.”
Cosmos currently employs more than 120 employees and continues to grow. The expansion will create approximately 60 new full-time jobs to the St. Louis area. Future job openings at the new headquarters primarily include positions in manufacturing and administration.
