Maintenance Mechanic

Since the doors opened in 1972, our Atlanta factory has grown dramatically into a sustainable state-of-the-art facility. In 2013, we completed our largest solar project yet by installing a 450-kilowatt photovoltaic system of nearly 1,900 panels. The amount of energy produced annually by this solar array could power nearly 52 average-sized homes, or approximately 5,000 lights bulbs for an entire year. With sustainability and safety always top of mind, our Atlanta factory proudly and passionately produces many of our dry pet food brands, including Alpo , Beneful , Cat Chow , Dog Chow , Fit & Trim , Friskies , Purina ONE and Pro Plan. This plant location is just along the southern crescent of Metro Atlanta an area that nearly 5 million residents and over 300 of our associates can call home. Atlanta is considered the major commercial and financial center of the Southeast and, if this beautiful city were a country, it would be the 28th largest economy in the world.
