Central Garden & Pet Company, an innovator, marketer and producer of quality branded products for the lawn and garden and pet supplies markets, announced today that it has purchased K&H Manufacturing, a producer of premium pet supplies and the largest marketer of heated pet products in the country. K&H sells branded pet products under the K&H and K&H Pets brands.
K&H produces innovative pet products that span several categories, including dog and cat, small animal, and farm and ranch. In business for 20 years, K&H’s patented heating products, as well as products with cooling and other thermal properties, are a strong strategic fit with Central’s existing pet portfolio. The purchase will enable Central to offer an even broader variety of products and continued service excellence to all of Central’s customers.
“K&H has exhibited an excellent history of growth, and we are excited to work with the K&H management team, who will be staying with the business, to help it continue to flourish in the years ahead,” said George Roeth, president and CEO of Central Garden & Pet. “Central and K&H have a shared passion for bringing consumers high quality, innovative, value-added products that help pet owners give their pets a more comfortable and caring environment. Together, we can continue to grow the category and develop exciting new products.”
