Hampshire-based Vetark Products has been acquired by Candioli Srl, with both companies set to benefit from the increased international presence.
With more than 130 years experience in the pharmaceutical market, Candioli will bring its vast industry knowledge to the new partnership across the product portfolio, international distribution and technical support.
Peter & Zena Scott, founders of Vetark, said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed taking Vetark from an idea in 1988 to the established business it is today, but it is now time to take a different direction and allow the company to continue to thrive under new ownership. We are extremely pleased to be able to have Candioli driving the business forward to reach new heights with Vetark.”
The acquisition will see Vetark continue to operate out of its Winchester office under the current name. With the direction and expertise of Candioli, the Scotts say the company looks set to cement its strong position as a leader in the animal health market.
Candioli Srl is part of the Candioli group, a family-owned group of companies whose core business is in manufacturing and distributing pharmaceutical products, as well as nutritional supplements for companion animals. Candioli products are now available in more than 50 countries worldwide.
“Candioli is very excited to help Vetark realise its potential, and we would like to reassure customers that they will continue to receive the high level of product satisfaction and customer care that Vetark prides itself on,” said Luca Cravero Candioli, CEO at Candioli Srl.
