In addition to this latest acquisition, ASC will have full scale operations throughout the entire United States during 2015 through new distribution centers to be announced at a later date.
“We welcome the PETNET associates to the ASC team as our first step into the Northeast. The ability to provide service throughout all 50 states and the Caribbean strengthens our commitment to the independent pet retail channel.” said George Ristevski, CEO of Animal Supply Company. “Our mission is not about growing larger; it is about delivering success locally through product line breadth and services that will make the independent pet retailer successful. Animal Supply Company’s value-added services, such as PRISM retail store merchandising and its automated ordering technology Pet Supply Link also differentiate our customer service by providing tools to our customers for their sustainable growth.”
PETNET will operate under the Animal Supply brand and will be a part of the newly formed northeast region. As ASC further expands into the Northeast, new distribution centers will be announced at a later date and will complement PETNET’s distribution coverage to complete ASC’s national distribution.
