AUA Private Equity Partners has acquired Westminster Pet Products (USA), a family-owned developer and marketer of pet treats, chews and supplies as well as shoe care products.
Westminster operates out of a 240k square foot BRC-AA certified facility located in Cumberland, Rhode Island, selling to a robust blue-chip North American customer base.
Westminster represents AUA Private Equity's first platform investment in the pet industry which is supported by attractive industry tailwinds and increasing consumer spending on pets as extensions of the core family. AUA Private Equity will work with existing management to continue the Company's growth trajectory through product development, increased channel penetration, and future tuck-in acquisitions.
