Pet food company moving to former Newport Chemical Depot

NEWPORT, Ind. — A pet food company says it will open a manufacturing and distribution warehouse at a former Army chemical weapons depot that’s being redeveloped in Vermillion County, Indiana.

Scott Pet Products announced today it would move operations to the Vermillion Rise Mega Park near Newport. The Rockville-based company says the new facility opening in January will house its beef and pork dog treat operations and could have 80 workers there by 2014.

The business will have a nine-acre campus at the former Newport Chemical Depot about 25 miles north of Terre Haute. Organizers have designated some 3,400 acres at the site for business development.

Destruction of the deadly VX nerve agent stored at the 7,100-acre depot finished in 2008 and it was closed by the Army.
