Pets Choice Acquire The Hatchwell Company

Leading Pet Food, Healthcare and Accessories manufacturer, Pets Choice, are excited to announce the acquisition of The Hatchwell Company, who manufacture treats and hygiene products for dogs, cats and small animals.

Tony Raeburn, CEO of Pets Choice, comments “We are always looking for opportunities to expand our business, a key part of that is identifying acquisition opportunities that compliment our existing offering. The Hatchwell Company is a fantastic addition to our portfolio, offering high quality and great value products. Another key appealing factor for us, is that their factory is near to our Blackburn base, meaning we can further enhance opportunities in this geographical region as our company continues to grow.”

The acquisition was finalised on Friday 3rd December and brings the number of brands in the Pets Choice portfolio to fourteen. Pets Choice would like to assure existing customers that there will be no disruption to service as the company changes hands.

Tony adds, “This is an exciting move for our company as we expand our pet treat offering and further enhance our well-rounded portfolio for all things pet.”

David and Emma Taylor, Owners of The Hatchwell Company comment “We have developed Hatchwells as our family business for 23 years, so it was very important to us to find the best buyers. We decided Pets Choice were the ideal option as they are locally based with a similar ethos to ours. We have no doubt that our brands and staff will be in safe hands – we’re excited to see what’s to come!”
