Pet Centar is a leading South East European pet supplies retailer, which has historically operated internationally across Croatia, Serbia and Romania.

Pet Centar has continued its international expansion by adding two bolt-on acquisitions, Animax in Romania and Mr. Pet in Slovenia.

The combined group is now a regional market leader in the pet supplies market, operating more than 115 multi-format locations, complemented by a competitive online and omnichannel offering and a distribution business.

The transaction was led by the Central and Eastern Europe private equity team of emerging markets asset manager The Rohaytn Group.
