First Domestic Rail Shipment to Customers Opens 46,000 SF Facility in Great Western Industrial Park

Intersand logo PMSDENVER – Intersand America Corp, a global cat litter producer, has opened its US Headquarters in Windsor, Colo. The 46,000 SF rail-served production, packaging and distribution facility, located in Colorado’s Great Western Industrial Park (GWIP), shipped its first orders to officially commence operations. Intersand opened the Windsor plant to support growing North American demand and completed the year-long build-out of its first US facility ahead of schedule.

“The opening of our US facility provides a key US distribution hub to serve our rapidly expanding US market presence while also creating timely local jobs,” said Intersand President and CEO Stéphane Chevigny. “We are thankful for all of the partnerships that helped us complete this project so efficiently.”

The Canada-based Intersand is a leading exporter of high-quality cat litter selling into 47 countries, from Brazil to Japan, through multiple channels, and offers several private label lines. The new Windsor distribution center provides a strategic geographic US presence near the bentonite clay mines of Wyoming that further enhances supply chain efficiency for its raw materials via rail.

Intersand’s inaugural rail shipment of finished product from its new US distribution facility was transported by Great Western Railway of Colorado (GWR), operated by OmniTRAX, Inc., an affiliate of The Broe Group. The facility’s rail service and connection to Class I railroads provide safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transportation of raw materials and completed products – a priority for the environmentally conscious Intersand.

“Supply chain efficiency is a nationwide focus for companies seeking to minimize operational expenses while serving multiple markets,” said Broe Real Estate Group Executive Vice President Reagan Shanley. “GWIP’s geographic advantages, combined with rail’s unparalleled safety and performance record, really optimize Intersand’s extended supply chain.”

Economic leaders hailed the milestone for its economic impact to the region. “Intersand’s commencement of operations is a testament to the hard work put in by the company’s leadership and staff to bring this facility online during difficult times,” said Upstate Colorado President and CEO Rich Werner. “This project reinforces GWIP’s collaborative partnership with local and County officials that creates the reliably seamless support behind northern Colorado’s continued economic growth.”
