— Pet food manufacturer Crosswind plans to move from Parkville, Mo., to Topeka.

Crosswind president and CEO Doug Kinsinger told business officials Thursday that the move would create 62 jobs in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Crosswind's pet food division produces foods and treats for generic and name brands. The company plans to spend about $4 million to convert a vacant Topeka building for its use.
