For The Earth Corp., a Phoenix-based manufacturer of nontoxic, biodegradable products ranging from a stain remover to cat litter, announced today that it completed the acquisition of Prestige Pet Products Inc., a 20-year-old producer and distributor.
Terms were not disclosed.
“When you look at the innovations that Prestige Pet Products has brought to the consumer, you realize the tremendous value this represents and a market that is actively searching for products that are safe and reliable,” said Nelson Grist, president and CEO of For The Earth. “A testament to this is the fact Prestige Pet Products has never been involved in any type of recall.”
For The Earth Corp. acquires yet another pet company.
Prestige Pet, based in Novi, Mich., uses a patented smoking process that gives its pork hide chews a higher palpability than other chews on the market, For The Earth reported.
Prestige Pet will operate as a subsidiary of For The Earth and will add to its offerings products such as Dream o’ Bowls pet feeders, PaPurr cat litter, Litter To Go, What Odor? spray and What Stain? spray.
For The Earth, which International Business Times in 2011 called “one to watch,” completed the acquisition of a second company this month, buying Mountain Green, a Tempe, Ariz., maker of all-natural laundry and cleaning products.
“Mountain Green is only one of the acquisitions we are making to increase our market penetration and growth by offering green products of the highest quality,” Grist said.
Last year, For The Earth agreed to acquire Miller's Cats and Kat Box King.<HOME>
