Premium pet food and treats supplier BrightPet Nutrition Group announced Wednesday that it is expanding its portfolio and manufacturing capabilities with the acquisition of MiracleCorp, an Ohio-based pet and equine products firm.
“Over the past 40 years, MiracleCorp has built a complete line of innovative, solutions-driven products and accessories for pets and prized animals – including our storied Stewart brand of high-quality, nutritious and flavorful treats,” MiracleCorp Chief Executive Officer William Sherk Jr. said in a release announcing the transaction. “The complementary nature of both companies’ offerings will create significant synergies, especially in the freeze-dried segment of pet food, toppers and treats.”
The purchase includes MiracleCorp’s production assets in Dayton and Lisbon in Ohio, Shelburne, NY, and Kiel, WI. BrightPet will also take on the company’s portfolio of premium pet food and treat brands, including Hamilton, Miracle Care, and ARC Veterinary Products.
“We believe that the addition of MiracleCorp will create a leader in kibble, kibble with inclusions, freeze dried treats, baked treats and toppers, as well as other pet wellness products,” said the CEO of BrightPet, Matthew Golladay, in a statement.
