Max & Ruffy’s, a manufacturer of organic pet treats, will relocate from its headquarters in Arlington, Va. to Westminster after receiving a loan from Carroll County Economic Development.
“We chose Carroll County because the facility was perfect for our manufacturing needs and we consider Carroll County a wonderful location,” said Max & Ruffy’s co-founder Kelly Raiser. “We look forward to being a part of the Westminster community.”
The manufacturer will be moving into a 20,000-square-foot building in November and will hire 20 employees by the spring 2016.
“It is gratifying that Carroll County is recognizable in the real estate market as an exceptional location for business both in terms of reasonable costs and a genuinely supportive business environment,” said county economic development director Jack Lyburn.
