“This is an incredible milestone for our PFX family,” said Michael Baker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pet Food Experts. “This partnership with DFH and the Tracy Family enables us to tap into strategic resources that will strengthen our services and provide greater value to our existing partners while continuing to nurture a healthy independent pet ecosystem.”
“Michael Baker and the Pet Food Experts team have built an exceptional business over the last 33 years,” said John Tracy, Executive Chairman and CEO of Dot Family Holdings. “There is a burgeoning demand for natural pet food and products, and we’re very excited to make a large strategic investment alongside Michael to further build upon Pet Food Experts’ sizable market position.”
The newly found partnership will provide patient capital and substantial resources to mobilize future growth, support the development of value-add capabilities, people, technology, as well as pursue add-on acquisitions.
“Pet Food Experts has an exceptional culture and a strong track record of success,” added Tracy. “These are qualities we always look for when identifying companies to join the DFH family. We look forward to working with and supporting the team to successfully execute their growth strategy.”
