Boss Pet Products Expands with Acquisition




Boss expects to reach new distribution channels.

KEWANEE, IL — Boss Holdings Inc. (Pink Sheets: BSHI) announced that its subsidiary Boss Pet Products Inc. has purchased the pet product distribution business and related assets of Coast 2 Coast Wholesale Pet Products.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Garden Grove, CA-based Coast 2 Coast markets toys, treats, harnesses, collars, food bowls and other pet product accessories to the pet specialty market.

Kurt Hansen of Coast 2 Coast will become Boss Pet’s national sales manager and will direct all sales in the pet specialty market segment, according to a press release. Acquired assets include Coast 2 Coast’s inventory, selected equipment, trademarks, tradenames and other intellectual property. Boss funded the purchase from its existing working capital.


According to the release: “Boss management believes the Coast 2 Coast line of top OEM branded pet products presents a significant opportunity for growth. Boss Pet already sells its pet leashes, restraints, toys and other pet product supplies in distribution channels not served by Coast 2 Coast, and the acquisition will provide cross-selling opportunities.”

Boss Pet operational offices are located in the Cleveland, OH, area. Boss Pet will retain Coast 2 Coast’s sales and customer support staff.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
