Phillips Pet Food & Supplies has partnered with Versele-Laga to distribute Higgins Premium Pet Foods out of its Texas distribution center. Higgins Premium Pet Foods, which is headquartered in Miami, specializes in companion birds and small animals.
“Phillips is thrilled to establish a partnership with the Higgins brand in the Texas market,” said Elizabeth Thibodeau, senior vice president of merchandising and supply chain for Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, which is based in Easton, Pa. “Today’s companion bird and small animal parents are looking for whole food quality and natural nutrition and Higgins’ assortment provides those benefits.”
Phillips also recently partnered with Pro Clear Aquatic Systems to distribute products in its Pennsylvania, Florida, South Carolina and Massachusetts distribution centers. Pro Clear Aquatic Systems provides customers with acrylic products manufactured in the United States. Products such as the Premier Wet Dry and RedFlex 4-in-1 are built by hand in Jacksonville, Fla., officials noted. In recent years, the company began importing a line of acrylic cylinders dubbed ProCylinder and a rimless glass combo line called ProStar.
“Phillips is excited to partner with Pro Clear to offer quality, American made aquatic products to our independent pet retailers,” Thibodeau said.
