LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire -07/27/12)- Revolutionary pet care company John Paul Pet has announced that it has forged a new partnership with Lone Star Pet Supply, a Texas-based distribution company that has serviced the Southern region of the U.S. since 1952. This association will merge two giants in the industry of pet care products, and will make the exclusive John Paul Pet family of products available to consumers in previously unreached markets. These visionary companies have a combined history of over 100 years of improving and innovating the way that American pets are fed, groomed and cared for.
Lone Star Pet was originally operated by two families, until 1965 when the Billimek family acquired the company. In 1977 the company became one of the first distributors in the United States of a premium dog and cat food that was designed to address the worries of concerned pet owners. The product was called Hill's Science Diet. In 1986, Mr. Billimek's nephew, Dennis Stahl, took over the family business and the company grew to be one of the most successful distributors of pet supplies in the region. As times have changed, Lone Star Pet Supply has changed with them, improving their service and expanding their distribution areas to include customers in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
Lone Star Pet Supply has built a solid reputation on their ability to provide wholesale access to the finest pet products on the market, and their partnership with John Paul Pet is a continuation of the tradition of excellence that both of these family-owned companies embody. Much in the same manner that they have made healthier pet foods available to a wider market, Lone Star Pet Supply is excited to bring the premium quality that defines the John Paul Pet line of pet care products to their customers.
