We are excited to partner with the management team to continue to support growth” said Paul Rubin, a Partner at Olympus. “We think 3D is outperforming their competition in a very attractive sector,” added Dave Cardenas, a Partner at Olympus.
3D’s land-based animal protein division provides essential protein ingredients and fats to trusted pet food brands and manufacturers. A solutions-oriented provider, the company develops, processes, distributes, markets and sells its ingredients based on each client’s unique needs.
Meanwhile, 3D’s other businesses consisting of marine, non-grain, and sourced solutions will become LinkOne Ingredient Solutions.
LinkOne will continue to utilize its manufacturing assets and strategic supply chain solutions outside of land animals to supply wholesome pet food ingredients for any pet’s diet.
Ed Mareth, Co-founder of LinkOne said, “Our new name signifies our passion to serve the pet food industry as your first and most critical link in your supply chain.”
