The makers of Mane 'n Tail equine and beauty products are busting out of their stable.
Phase-two of a four-part expansion project in Northampton County broke ground Tuesday.
It was an exciting day for Mane 'n Tail employees, who are excited about their growing business and now their growing facility.
Straight Arrow Products, makers of Mane 'n Tail products, is expanding its facilities to better suit the growing company.
Phase two broke ground Tuesday, with plans to become an area where raw ingredients for their products are first weighed and stored.
"They'll still be stored in here as well and then when we're ready to batch, they get transitioned over to phase one, which is what we originally built a few years back," said Devon Katzev, president and CEO of Straight Arrow Products.
The project makes transferring the products and the manufacturing process a bit quicker.
"Well what's happening now is that we have to transition them back and forth between Highland over to here so there's a lot of trucks going back and forth," Katzev said.
Phase three is already in the works, with hopes of becoming office space to promote better teamwork among employees, especially social media and sales.
"It makes for a better cohesion. It keeps it closer like a family, communication is opened up, we all know that if communication isn't happening that's your biggest enemy," Katzev said.
Mane 'n Tail representatives said they're doing more sales on Amazon, which is helping to lift and create more jobs.
With the expansion, they say they hope to employ 30 or more workers over the next three to five years.
