BrightPet Nutrition Group Acquires New Warehouse
BrightPet Nutrition Group purchased a 60,000-square-foot facility located in Sherburne, N.Y.
The acquisition will expand the company’s warehousing and packaging capabilities.
BrightPet acquired the building, formally known as The Kenyon Press, on Sept. 13, 2019. Previously dedicated to print, pre-press, and bindery, the structure will be turned into a warehouse used for the storage, packaging, and labeling of BrightPet’s pet food formulas. The space will be an addition to the company’s contract manufacturers Ohio Pet Foods in Lisbon, OH, Southern Tier Pet Nutrition in Sherburne, N.Y. and Phoebe Products in Kiel, Wis.
“The purchase of the Kenyon Press building brings us great potential to maximize our post-production process,” said Jim Cudahy, general manager at Southern Tier Pet Nutrition. “The space is critical to achieve greater efficiencies within our operations.”
BrightPet’s in-house brands, Blackwood Pet Food and Adirondack Pet Food, as well as the company’s co-packed and private labels, are expecting to see the full benefits of the purchase within less than a month.
The expansion comes a few months after BrightPet announced the launch of By Nature, a line of dog and cat food with nutritional formulas in sustainable packaging to support independent retail chains nationwide. BrightPet also recently announced the addition of several new pet treat offerings within the Adirondack and Blackwood brands this past August.
