CHICAGO – Pestell Group, a portfolio company backed by Wind Point Partners, has acquired Targeted Pet Treats (TPT) to bolster its Pestell Pet Products business unit, which currently manufactures litter and small animal bedding products. The acquisition opens Pestell to the growing dental pet treat market. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
