Berkeley County Development Authority (BDCA) welcomes Clorox into our local business family. The Clorox Cat Litter plant opened its doors on October 21st, creating 100 new jobs.  

A ceremony was held to mark the grand opening. In attendance were Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, the staff of Sen. Joe Manchin, Governor Jim Justice, many state and local officials, and Dr. Pete Checkovich from Blue Ridge Community and Technical College. Representing Clorox were a group of employees donning cat ears to highlight the new cat litter plant, Jennifer Richter, Vice President of Manufacturing, and Michael Holly, Vice President of Product Supply Services, and Linda Rendle, CEO of The Clorox Company.

 “We could not be prouder to be a part of the Berkeley County business community,” Richter declared as she spoke of the job creation and the positive economic impact the plant will have in West Virginia.

“We pride ourselves on investing in the people and the communities that we operate in. We look forward to doing the same here in Martinsburg,” Holly stated before presenting Blue Ridge Community & Technical College with a $10,000 check.

BCDA is happy to welcome Clorox to Berkeley County. The Clorox Company matches the values of BCDA and the Berkeley County community in its desire to assist and partner with local educational institutions, recognizing the integral part they play in the success of the local economy.  

BCDA remains committed to bringing companies to Berkeley County with the same dedication to local community that the Clorox Company has shown.  Along with the donation to Blue Ridge, Clorox has donated and supported West Virginia University Workforce Development, Berkeley County Humane Society, the United Way of the Eastern Panhandle, the Martinsburg Rotary, the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce, and the West Virginia Manufacturers Association.
