Press Release Source: Animal Supply Company
Animal Supply Company (ASC), a national pet food and supplies distributor, has added or expanded distribution with 11 brand partners: Almo Nature, Butcher’s Prime, FirstMate, Green Coast Pet, Halo, Merrick Pet Care, Meowijuana, Primal, Solid Gold, Tyson Pet and Weruva. Animal Supply is the exclusive distributor to six of the 11 (Almo Nature, Butcher’s Prime, FirstMate, Green Coast Pet, Halo and Meowijuana).
The brands all specialize in manufacturing high quality natural and organic pet food and products. According to a company statement, the brands chose ASC because of its growing, modern distribution network and leading digital products and services.
“I knew Animal Supply was a team I wanted to represent my brand,” said Mike Bateman, President, COO & co-founder of Green Coast Pet. “When we had the opportunity to work together, we knew we had a winning partnership. We couldn’t be happier with the exclusive national partner we have chosen to help build Green Coast Pet to the next level.”
ASC has developed digital assets optimized for a business-to-business environment that make it easier for pet retailers to stock their store shelves with brands their customers want. This includes a new retail website and mobile app launching later this year that make doing business simple. The website features a modern mobile responsive design, easy shopping by categories and brands, dynamic inventory, advanced search, quick ordering and simple checkout. The mobile app will give retailers the power to shop on-the-go from the convenience of their smartphones with innovative scan-to-order that allows them to spend less time ordering, and more with pet parents.
“We’re thrilled these top brands have selected us as their exclusive distribution partner,” said Tim Batterson, chief operating officer of Animal Supply Company. “Whether it’s a big name or a hard-to-find niche product, our goal is to connect the most trusted brands with independent retailers who share our belief that pets are part of the family.”
