Ethos Pet Nutrition, the makers of CANIDAE Natural Pet Foods, announced Friday that a formal agreement has been signed to operate a shipping facility out of the old Texas Feathers Warehouse in Brownwood.

 “The agreement, which required several months to complete, will be instrumental in allowing Ethos Pet Nutrition to provide our customers with the highest standard for quality, cleanliness and shipment accuracy," Ed Cooper, vice president of production for Ethos Pet Nutrition, said in a press release.

Cooper is currently renovating the Texas Feather Warehouse location, which sat vacant and deteriorated for the past several years. Cooper continued, "We're excited to get this place cleaned up and provide valuable jobs to the residents of Brownwood."

The City of Brownwood and Brown County and especially Emily Crawford have been instrumental in helping to complete the agreement and provide Ethos Pet Nutrition with support to assist in the extensive cleanup operation, according to the press release.
