“We are thrilled to welcome VersaPet to the Pestell family. VersaPet brings high-quality cat litter and a great reputation in the industry and we are excited about the future,” said Matt Miller, Pestell PET CEO. “We look forward to the additional opportunities we can provide customers through our combined business.”
VersaPet, founded in 2009 and headquartered in Toronto, Canada, is a manufacturer of private label and branded cat litter products.
Pestell’s PET business manufactures animal litter and small animal bedding products, and VersaPet will increase PET’s overall capacity for cat litter production. VersaPet will offer its customers additional products from the broader PET portfolio, including paper-based animal litter, animal bedding, pet treats, and dental chews.
“We are extremely pleased to be joining Pestell Pet Products,” said Elliott Wahle, chairman and CEO of VersaPet. “We believe that this new partnership will dramatically enhance our ability to innovate and allow us to continue to provide the level of service and quality our customers are accustomed to. We are most excited about the next phase of our growth as part of the Pestell organization.”
The acquisition of VersaPet is the third for PET since Wind Point acquired Pestell, after BPV Environmental and Targeted Pet Treats.
