The Need 

To serve the growing consumer demand for pet food ingredients, Scoular needed to identify a new location for its state-of-the-art freeze-dried manufacturing facility.  Due to supply chain constraints, Scoular knew it needed to focus its site search on a relatively focused search region in the Midwestern United States.

The Solution 

GLS focused the initial search across five states.  A total of 40 sites and communities were evaluated and analyzed. Four finalist sites were selected and incentive negotiations were conducted with each location. In June 2019 Scoular announced its selection of Seward, Nebraska, and committed to bringing $50 MM in capital investment and 100 full-time jobs to the community. GLS negotiated incentives that offset Scoular's total costs by 10-15%.
