ARLINGTON, TX — Petmate announced that it has acquired GAMMA2, a manufacturer of airtight containers mainly used to store dry pet food.

"At Petmate, we continually strive to provide quality products to help enhance the well-being and health of pets and their families," said Alice Tillett, CEO of Petmate. "With the addition of the GAMMA2 industry-leading storage containers we can deliver an ever more impactful range of innovative products to our customers. It adds to our goal to provide a one-stop shop for all pet product needs."

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

GAMMA2, best known for the Vittles Vault, was founded by Curt Leland. It has corporate offices in Carlsbad, CA, and manufacturing plants in Gardena, CA, and Sweetwater, TN.

Over the next six months, Petmate will complete a full transition of the Carlsbad corporate office and its associated intellectual property to its corporate headquarters in Arlington, TX.

GAMMA2 launched in 1989 with the introduction of the patented GAMMA Seal Lid. The company's product line currently offers nearly 30 pet and food storage products for in-home, outdoor and travel. The products are distributed in-store and online at Petco, PetSmart, Costco, Target, Home Depot, Lowe's, amazon.com and chewy.com.
