Pet treat firm considers Harlan for new plant

    HARLAN – A pet treat manufacturing firm has plans to locate in the Harlan Industrial Park, with hopes of bringing upwards of 15 initial jobs and an additional 30 to the community in the future.
    Shelby County Chamber of Commerce and Industry Executive Director Todd Valline said last week, the business is interested in possibly acquiring the former MAT Ag building, located to the east of Monogram Prepared Meats in the business park.
    “This would be a manufacturer,” Valline said.  “It’s basically a higher-end pet treat product.  
    “If you think about some of the Petcos and those types of places that you go and you see those pet treats that are actual bone, that’s what they produce.”
