Garmon Corp., a Temecula, Calif., pet supplement manufacturer, has acquired the Resources line from Kemin Industries.

The transaction, announced today, adds Resources to a Garmon supplement collection that includes the NaturVet, Pet Organics and Overby Farm brand names. Financial details of the acquisition were not released.

Kemin, a Des Moines, Iowa, maker of specialty ingredients for the pet and human markets, will turn over the marketing of Resources supplements to Garmon beginning Nov. 1.

“This is a positive development for customers as Garmon is dedicated to the development, manufacturing and servicing of veterinary supplements to the companion animal health industry,” said Andrew G. Yersin, Ph.D., the president of Kemin’s Companion Animal Health Division. “In addition, this transaction will allow Kemin to focus on its core mission of developing innovative, specialty ingredients for industry partners that deliver nutrition and health benefits to people and animals.”

Kemin will remain in the animal health sector with products formulated for pigs, poultry, cattle and pets.

The Resources line is designed for dogs and cats and includes 18 products that support everything from gastrointestinal health and joints to the immune system and general wellness.

Kemin and Garmon are members of the National Animal Supplement Council, a trade group dedicated to setting standards for the animal supplement industry.
