Our Maricopa factory, located just 40 miles southwest of Bakersfield, California, uses its radiating sunshine for drying clay during our mining operations – an innovative solution which has led to substantial reductions in the energy needs for our industrial dryers. This factory is proud to feature one of North America’s most energy efficient industrial cogeneration systems, which powers nearly 82 percent of the plant’s electrical usage. For 50 years, brands like Tidy Cats® have combined the highest quality ingredients and science to even the most disposable products. Constant innovation and a safe work environment – years without a Lost Time Accident, in fact – are just a few of the reasons the average tenure for our associates is 10+ years, meaning you’ll be learning from leaders in the industry.
