The specialty proteins and fats manufacturer acquires marine protein manufacturer LinkOne Marine Solutions.
LinkOne Marine specializes in dried, fresh, and frozen marine proteins including salmon, sardine, and herring (among others) serving premium pet food brands in North America.
"We are excited about the value-added products they offer the market and believe there are significant growth opportunities available for the combined business," said Scott Clawson, CEO of 3D. "The acquisition is highly complementary to the products and capabilities we currently offer, and we look forward to growing and working alongside the LinkOne Marine team."
"We believe 3D is the ideal home for the LinkOne Marine business and that the combined business will greatly improve how we serve our customers," said Ed Mareth, co-founder of LinkOne. "We are excited to build on our long-term success as a part of 3D," said Kevin Keeling, the other co-founder of LinkOne.
LinkOne Marine partners with established fisheries in North America, South America, and Europe to source and manufacture specialty marine proteins for the premium pet food industry.
