Monkfield Nutrition Ltd. has announced that it has acquired the Aquatic side of the Arcadia Products Plc business.
This comes shortly after the successful acquisition of Arcadia Reptile in the Spring of this year. Within a few months stock availability has moved from approximately 50% to 93% across the Arcadia Reptile range, several new products have come into the market and there are lots more in the pipeline!
“This has been a logical next step for Monkfield Nutrition given the worldwide appeal of the Arcadia brand. Increasingly retail outlets have a broad offering across Reptile and Aquatic and we are now well placed to fully support the specialist outlets and independent shops going forwards, “ commented Jo Wise, Managing Director of Monkfield. “I am delighted that Gerard will continue to help the business on an ongoing consultancy agreement.”
Monkfield Nutrition will initially focus on ensuring an effortless account transfer process and increasing stock levels to 100%.
“I am delighted with the progress Arcadia Reptile has made since its purchase by Monkfield Nutrition. Sales have significantly increased, principally due to increased stock levels and there are many new products on the way. The only negative feedback was from customers wishing to buy all Arcadia products from one supplier. Today’s announcement now corrects that with all of Arcadia under one roof again,” remarked Gerard Oates, Managing Director of Arcadia Products. “Monkfield Nutrition is a strong company who will nurture and grow Arcadia going forwards. I am pleased Arcadia has gone to a good home, and I wish Jo Wise and his team the very best of luck for the future.”
2017 has been an exciting year so far for Monkfield Nutrition and with a full relocation into brand new purpose built premises in Mepal, Cambridgeshire at the end of the year there is more to come!
In the meantime Monkfield Nutrition’s focus will remain on providing the right products, services and advice for our customers.
