CASCO Pet grows with the aquisition of German firm

CASCO Pet has completed the acquisition of IHM Müller Aquarientechnik, based in NW Germany.

This acquisition is part of the company's strategic growth plan and will give it access to the biggest pet market in Europe - Germany.

IHM Müller is a family run business with over 20 years' experience and this acquisition will result in a combined expertise in aquatics and also brings CASCO's expertise of reptiles, birds and small animals to this very important market. Together the two firms have over 40 years of knowledge, experience as well as reputations for quality and service.

Commenting on the acquisition Matthew Bubear, CASCO Pet CEO, said: "CASCO has always had an ambition to be based in Germany but I wanted to ensure it had the right infrastructure and team in place.

"IHM Müller is a perfect fit, it has similar values to CASCO and, like us, has earned an enviable reputation for excellent quality and that is very much reflected in their product.

"Frank Müller, the son of the founder, will remain with the company as General Manager and I am very excited about the opportunities that lay ahead."

Frank Müller added: "I am happy and proud to be part of the great CASCO Pet family. Sharing our significant and diverse experience, this combined company will provide great products for our customers. I'm hugely enthusiastic about the future and the great work we will do."
