The Crump Group Announces $85 Million Expansion

Nashville, NC: The Crump Group Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of all natural, limited ingredient pet treats announced a $85 million expansion within three years of locating their first production facility in the United States in Nash County.

Following the successful acquisition of the facility in 2021, which involved an initial investment exceeding $40 million to procure the property, manufacturing facility, and equipment, The Crump Group Inc., which offers premium dog treats under the brands Caledon Farms®, Crumps’ Naturals® and Dog Delights®, is now poised for an even more substantial leap forward.

With an additional investment of $85 million, the expansion project will significantly bolster the company’s production capacity as The Crump Group currently partners with major retailers across North America, including Costco®, PetSmart®, Pet Valu®, Walmart®, Loblaws®, Publix® and Target®.

“The Crump Group’s significant expansion announcement is exciting news for Nash County and the Research Triangle region,” said Robbie Davis, chairman of the Nash County Board of Commissioners. “Crump’s expansion will continue to help diversify the local economy and expand the county’s food processing cluster. We congratulate them on this tremendous news”, said Davis.

“This investment and expansion underscore our unwavering dedication to both operational excellence and community prosperity. By expanding our footprint and creating new employment opportunities, we will make a positive and lasting impact on the local economy,” shared Paul Sproule, President at The Crump Group Inc.

Nash County and North Carolina sweet potatoes have been a key ingredient in several of the company’s products for many years. The Crump Group acknowledged that much of the impetus for expanding to Nash County was its closeness to the main ingredient of the dog treats, sweet potatoes, eliminating much of the transportation costs of having U.S. sweet potatoes shipped to Canada.

“It is always exciting news when a local industry announces an expansion of their facility. It’s a compliment to the company’s growth and to Nash County”, said Andy Hagy, Nash County Economic Development Director. “The 1st quarter of 2024 has been exciting for Nash County with the announcement of $745 million in capital investment from local expansions and new businesses locating to Nash County”.


The Crump Group is family owned and operated, producing all natural, gently dehydrated single and limited ingredient pet treats since 2006. Our core brands include Crumps’ Naturals®, Caledon Farms® & Dog Delights®. We also produce many private brands which are sold and distributed across North America. The Crump Group’s pet products are currently available at major retailers such as Costco®, PetSmart®, Pet Valu®, Walmart®, Loblaws®, Publix® and Target® to name a few.
