SportPet, a Topspin Consumer Partners portfolio company and a manufacturer and marketer of branded and private label pet products, has acquired Mission Pets.
“We’re thrilled to add Mission Pets to our platform and believe their products will be highly complementary to our existing offerings,” said Adam Kellogg, CEO of SportPet. “As more families continue to bring pets into their homes, our business will be well-positioned to service those families with high quality, reliable products that can be used by furry friends for years to come.”
Since 1999, the San Francisco-based Mission Pets has been a leader in the pet lifestyle space, developing functional and novelty apparel, collars, leashes, bowls, bedding and home décor items for dogs and cats, company officials said. Mission Pets’ products can be found in major brick-and-mortar retailers and through the company’s website, Harrybarker.com.
“Since the launch of our first pet product line, we have helped serve countless pet families across the U.S. and internationally,” said Michelle Elliott, co-founder of Mission Pets. “Looking forward, we are excited to join SportPet and Topspin to accelerate our growth and continue servicing our customers with exceptional products across a broad array of categories.”
Topspin Consumer Partners, a Mamaroneck, N.Y.-based private equity firm, invested in SportPet earlier this year.
“The combination of SportPet and Mission Pets is compelling for a multitude of reasons,” said Ojas Vahia, partner at Topspin. “Aside from the immediate scale and distribution opportunities, Mission Pets’ creative design team coupled with SportPet’s manufacturing capabilities will create a formidable player in pet durable products. We look forward to working with the Mission Pets team and welcome them to our SportPet family.”
