Nano Pet Products, LLC Signs Two Major Distributors to Meet Growing Demand for its Nanotechnology-Based Pet Products
(Nanowerk News) Nano Pet Products, LLC, a
Wilton, Connecticut-based company dedicated to bringing cleaner and
healthier pet products to pet owners worldwide through nanotechnology, has
signed two major new distributors, Superdog Pet Food Company based in
Leola, Pennsylvania and Southeast Pet based in Austell, Georgia, to meet
the growing demand for the company's new Dog Gone Smart™
Bed and Dog Gone Smart™ Wear product lines.
Superdog Pet Food President, Fred Shober said, "We have received
extremely positive initial feedback on the pet beds and a great many of our
retail partners have expressed interest in carrying Nano Pet Products' dog
bed and apparel lines and were willing to try the product over other
trusted brands in the category." He added, "It is clear that Nano Pet
Products' nanotechnology is revolutionizing the pet industry as there are
simply too many 'me too' products out there."
According to Ryan Judge, President of Southeast Pet, "We introduced
Nano Pet Products' bed and apparel lines at our open house recently, and
the response was overwhelmingly positive." He added, "We are excited to
offer products that are technologically superior, innovative, and unique
which we believe allow our independent retailers to remain competitive in
an industry dominated by 'big box players."
Chris Onthank, managing member and founder of Nano Pet Products, LLC
said, "We are proud to be working with some of the pet industry's most
well-respected distributors and appreciate their vote of confidence in our
technology and the increasingly positive impact it is having on the pet
industry as a whole."
According to The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association,
Inc.'s (APPMA) Americans will spend more than $43.4 billion on pets in
