Phelps Pet Products to Showcase Investment at Global Pet Expo
Phelps Pet Products will share its new pet treat contract manufacturing capabilities at the upcoming Global Pet Expo, which is being held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., March 20-22. Phelps Pet Products will showcase the products and expanded capacity resulting from a multi-million dollar investment by New York-based private equity firm Granite Bridge Partners LLC.
“Granite Bridge Partners has demonstrated their belief and commitment to the pet industry through investments in bringing new innovation and capabilities to the Phelps Pet Products pet treat business,” said Rick Ruffolo, CEO and president of Phelps Pet Products in Rockford, Ill. “These strategic investments in people, processes and equipment enable us to offer our customers more production capacity, more packaging options and more innovative choices including USDA Organic Certified pet treats, Marine Certified ingredients, functional ingredients and the industry’s most extensive assortment of ‘Made in the USA’ meat-first pet treats.”
“We look forward to ‘re-introducing’ the Phelps Pet Products business to the industry during the Global Pet Expo,” Ruffolo added. “It is going to be a great show.”
