Boss Holdings Acquires Wholesale Supplier of Grooming Products and Discount Pet Products
Boss Pet Products, Inc., an Oakwood Village, Ohio-based subsidiary of Boss Holdings, Inc. in Kewanee, Ill., has acquired the assets of PetEdge, Inc., a supplier of wholesale pet grooming supplies and discount pet products.
“This acquisition will bring renewed reliability, service levels and superior product offering to PetEdge customers,” said Richard Bern, COO of Boss Holdings.
Adding PetEdge reflects another major step in Boss Pet’s acquisition strategy following its June 2017 acquisition of Coast2Coast Wholesale Pet Products, said company officials. Founded in 1956, PetEdge is a developer and distributor of branded pet supplies and products to a diverse customer base, including pet professionals and retailers.
Through the acquisition Boss will have access to exclusive branded pet products sold through e-commerce, retail and professional groomer and veterinary channels, including Master Equipment grooming tubs and tables; Master Grooming Tools shears, brushes, combs, nail care products, and related tools and accessories; Top Performance shampoos and supplies; ProSelect cages; Ranch Rewards treats; Casual Canine apparel; and Zanies dog toys.
Other well-known and exclusive PetEdge brands include Aria and Pet Effects; while PetEdge also will continue to provide favorite products from leading brands like Oster, Wahl, BioGroom, TropiClean, KONG, Greenies, and Geib.
“Our acquisition of the PetEdge assets complements our Boss Pet Products business both from a product line offering and retail channel perspective. This investment represents an important strategic opportunity as we continue to grow in the expanding pet products and services industry,” said Chris Miller, president of Boss Pet Products.
