CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Dec. 3, 2018) – Elements Brands, which owns a variety of consumer product companies, has acquired the Natural Dog Company, an all-natural pet company based in Marble Falls, Texas. The Natural Dog Company is Elements Brands’ sixth and largest acquisition since its founding in 2011, and first foray into the pet space. The addition of the premium pet company positions Elements Brands to double its revenue in 2019 and marks the first time Elements Brands will have vertically-integrated manufacturing capabilities.

“We are excited to enter the pet industry because of its tremendous growth in the past decade and its unlimited potential as people continue to treat pets as family members and seek the absolute best care for them,” states Bill D’Alessandro, founder and CEO of Elements Brands. “For the past decade, the Natural Dog Company has hand-crafted premium products, building a massive, loyal customer base, which even includes celebrity pets – we were blown away by the rave reviews that Natural Dog Company’s products received from customers. We’re going to focus on giving people more of what they already love – natural, human-grade products for their dogs. We’ll be launching several new product lines and expanding the brand to new groups of customers, all while retaining the strong core values and ethos of the Natural Dog Company brand.”
