The British joint supplement brand wants to grow sales and expand into new markets.
The acquisition is part of Lintbells’ US growth strategy and represents a “significant expansion” in its footprint. The company, already present in the market with its supplements business, plans to expand its range of products in the North American market.
According to Lintbells, the takeover of Walkin’ Pets will open new markets in the UK and internationally thanks to the US company’s global distribution network.
“Lintbells is an ambitious business, and this acquisition moves us into a completely new but aligned sector and supports our global growth strategy as we move towards becoming a global pet healthcare company,” said CEO Fiona Hope.
Walkin’ Pets, established in New Hampshire by Mark Robinson in 2001, offers a wide range of aid products for pets, including wheelchairs, harnesses, and braces.
