Spot & Tango

A specialty dog food company is moving some of its operations to Lehigh County. This will create around 100 new jobs in the county.

Pennsylvania State Welcomed the Initiative

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said that Spot & Tango are planning to open a manufacturing facility in Upper Macungie Township. Spot & Tango are a manufacturer of fresh and kibble-alternative pet food products. Therefore, the company has leased a 66,700-square-foot building in Allentown where it will produce a portion of its products in-house.  In addition, the project will include improvements to the existing facility, equipment acquisition and employee training. “We are thrilled to welcome Spot & Tango to Pennsylvania and grateful for its investment into Lehigh County communities and the state as a whole,” said Governor Tom Wolf.

“We explored a variety of locations throughout the Northeast and selected the Lehigh valley due to its close proximity to major metropolitan centers, infrastructure and talent pool”.  Russell Breuer, CEO and founder of the company stated this during the announcement. “We are looking forward to working with the Governor’s office, local leaders and building a long-term relationship with the community”.

    Governor’s Action Team coordinated the project. Spot & Tango received $288,000 in funding for the project from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED)’s Pennsylvania First grant program. In addition, they also received $150,000 workforce development grant to assist with workforce training. In return, the company pledges to invest about $20 million. Moreover, the company is committed to create at least 96 full-time jobs during the next three years. Don Cunningham, president and CEO of Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp., said Spot & Tango is the latest entry in pet food production in the region.
