GattiHR Industrial Assists Canidae in Recruiting a New Head of Manufacturing

GattiHR Industrial recruits Joshua Carr as Canidae’s Head of Manufacturing. Tom Conroy and Steve Doan led this search.

At Canidae we believe that what’s best for our pets is best for us all. That’s why for the last 25 years we’ve been committed to providing high quality pet food for pets and their people. Our products are packed full of goodness to bring out the best in pets, with recipes made from wholesome ingredients and formulated for whole body health. Canidae provides dogs and cats with high quality pet food, full of goodness.

Founded in 1996 by two pet owners who knew they could make pet food better. Better nutrients. Better flavor. Better for pets and better for us all. Canidae has been committed to quality ever since. That commitment is upheld today in more than just the nutrient-rich, premium pet food. To continue and further that commitment to quality, Canidae invested in a company-owned pet nutrition plant in Brownwood, TX that puts safety and integrity first. Our facility allows the organization to have control over the formulas, quality, and nutrition of our food, and continue to research and develop new recipes.

The Head of Manufacturing is responsible for all of manufacturing from receipt of raw materials to production of warehouse ready product. He/She will be the cultural leader, driving operational and personnel improvements through the two plants. The right candidate will possess the willingness and drive to improve to a best-in-class extrusion operation, while creating an environment to be a recognized employer-of-choice in the Brownwood, TX region. This role will oversee two, multi-shift operations that Canidae has recently invested in new capital equipment and is prepared to continue that investment to increase output over the next few years.
