Another acquisition for Central Garden & Pet

Central Garden & Pet Company (Central) has revealed its second acquisition in the past two days.

The Walnut Creek, Calif.-based supplier has signed a binding agreement to acquire all of the business assets of General Pet Supply, a Midwest supplier of pet food and products.

Central previously had a partnership alliance with Milwaukee, Wis.-based General Pet Supply serving different regions of the country. The acquisition is expected to close in early April 2018. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“The addition of General Pet Supply gives our company unparalleled distribution capabilities in the Pet industry,” said George Roeth, CEO and president of Central Garden & Pet. “The acquisition is important to us strategically as it fills out our national footprint, expands our food distribution business, and provides us access to the veterinary channel.”

Yesterday, Central reported that it has acquired Bell Nursery Holdings, LLC, one of the largest commercial growers of flowers and plants in the Mid-Atlantic region.
