What started in 1997 in Daniel and Katrina Dressen’s garage has grown into a company that has buyers in all 50 states, over 30 countries and is the nation’s third largest pet-grooming supply business. Senproco, Inc. manufactures and distributes eight brands of products, including three brands of coat care supplies. The company has expanded its product line to include pet bathing systems, grooming wear, grooming shears, decorative pet ribbon and additional shampoo and conditioning products. In 2010, the business introduced Green Groom, a new line of shampoos and conditioners, which is natural, biodegradable and packaged in recyclable containers that are silk-screened with safe inks rather than plastic labels. Green Groom has already become the company’s second largest selling item.
Senproco, Inc. and the Dressen’s have used the services of the Small Business Administration beginning in 1999 with their first guaranteed loan. Over the years they have taken advantage of SBA’s Export Working Capital Loan Program and working with Dakota BUSINESS Finance utilizing SBA’s 504 program to purchase existing buildings in Sioux Falls.
