BrightPet Nutrition Group Purchases New Warehouse in Sherburne, New York

BrightPet Nutrition Group, a leading developer and reliable contract producer of premium and super-premium pet foods for U.S. and international markets, is excited to announce the purchase of a 60,000-square-foot facility located in Sherburne, New York. The acquisition will expand the company’s warehousing and packaging capabilities. BrightPet acquired the building, formally known as The Kenyon Press, on September 13, 2019. Previously dedicated to print, pre-press, and bindery, the structure will be transformed into a top-of-the-line warehouse used for the storage, packaging, and labeling of BrightPet’s premium pet food formulas. The space will be a beneficial addition to the company’s contract manufacturers Ohio Pet Foods in Lisbon, Ohio, Southern Tier Pet Nutrition in Sherburne, New York and Phoebe Products in Kiel, Wisconsin

“The purchase of the Kenyon Press building brings us great potential to maximize our post-production process,” says Jim Cudahy, General Manager at Southern Tier Pet Nutrition. “The space is critical to achieve greater efficiencies within our operations.” 

BrightPet’s in-house brands, Blackwood Pet Food and Adirondack Pet Food, as well as the company’s co-packed and private labels, should begin seeing the full benefits of the purchase within less than a month. 

The expansion comes a few months after BrightPet announced the launch of By Nature, a line of dog and cat food with nutrient-rich formulas in sustainable packaging to support independent retail chains nationwide. BrightPet also recently announced the addition of several new pet treat offerings within the Adirondack and Blackwood brands this past August.
