Alderson Logistics Acquisitions Investigated

The Commerce Commission has opened an investigation into the acquisition of the assets of ABS Carriers Limited (trading as Animal Bedding Supplies/Moorey Animal Bedding) and Supa Shavings Limited by Alderson Logistics Limited and interconnected entities.

ABS and Supa Shavings are the largest suppliers of wood shavings-based animal bedding products in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region.

The Commission will consider whether competition is likely to have been substantially lessened in any relevant market in breach of section 47 of the Commerce Act. The parties involved did not apply for clearance for either acquisition.
