The wholesaler, based in the north of Germany, is one of the leading trading companies for pet supplies in Europe. Since its start in 1974, the company has continuously grown and expanded its business. Today they export to more than 80 countries and offer a range of 6,500 products for dogs, cats, birds, small animals, fish and reptiles.
Currently they are searching for a new supplier for wood outdoor products for pets, like bird feeders, small animals and dog houses or rabbit hutches.
The quality of these wood products should be suitable for outdoor use and, as a result, should be weather-resistant. Manufacturers should commit to European quality standards in production. As the safety of the animal is essential, the articles must be stable and without holes or gaps in which the animal could injure itself. If the wood products surface is treated with glaze or paint, this must be non-toxic. To prevent mould growth the used wood for the products has to be completely dried before processing. Further the wood products must be gas-fumigated before the shipment.
Yet the German company imports these wood outdoor products from Asia but now is looking for new suppliers in Europe. They focus on suppliers from Romania and Georgia but offers from further European countries are also welcome.
The company is looking for experienced manufacturers who are already producing outdoor products, as the company is not interested in the development process of these products. They are interested in establishing a supplier or manufacturing agreement and in partnerships on a long-term basis.
