Phillips Feed and Pet Supply of Easton, Pa., finalized its acquisition of Paterson, N.J.-based Mike’s Feed Farm Wholesale Distribution Co. on Monday. Details of the deal were not released.
With a 24-state distribution territory that spans from Maine in the northeast to Florida in the south and Alabama, Tennessee and Iowa in the west, Phillips Feed and Pet Supply provides a range of services, including pricing, advertising and merchandising, to pet stores, feed and farm stores, groomers, veterinarians and humane organizations.
“The primary objective for Phillips is to continue to build a best-in-class distribution network,” said Jessica Farina, Phillips Feed and Pet Supply marketing and inside sales manager. “One of our goals is to offer services that sustain the health of the pet specialty channel. We truly believe a major component of this goal is providing increased availability of products and services from a single-source distribution facility; as well as assuring that our retailers are kept in stock with fresh product and are up to date with the newest brands.”
Mike Goldsmith, former owner of Mike’s Feed Farm Wholesale Distribution Co., will continue to operate his Mike’s Feed Farm retail store, located in Riverdale, N.J. Mike’s Feed Farm markets and sells food for dogs, cats, small animals, wild and domestic birds and deer, as well as horse and livestock feed. It also sells pet supplies and treats. <HOME>
