Animal Supply Company Acquires Holistic Pet Source
Animal Supply Company (ASC) has acquired the assets of Holistic Pet Source. Holistic Pet Source’s inventory, customer and vendor contracts will be integrated into ASC’s east region effective immediately.
With this, ASC will offer independent pet stores in the southeast more than 17,000 pet specialty products.
“We are excited to extend our partnerships with great brands such as Champion and Zignature,” said Don McIntyre, CEO of ASC. “Expanding our presence in the southeast, furthering our relationship with many current customers and welcoming new customers to the ASC family is a strategic win for the company. We look forward to strengthening and building on the acquired vendor relationships.”
“We feel it is time to start a new chapter in our lives with the transition of Holistic Pet Source’s assets to ASC,” Gaia Melkumova and Jerry Wiliams, co-owners of Holistic Pet Source, said. “Holistic Pet Source started with the guiding principle that it’s not about the business, it’s about the pets, and we are confident in ASC’s ability to carry on the traditions defined in our name while meeting the needs of an evolving industry. We are grateful to ASC for their important function within the pet industry, and we are also grateful to our vendors, customers and employees that supported us on what began as a simple quest more than 20 years ago to provide the best for our pets, and still remains true today.”
