Award-winning Antos is changing its name to Nova Dog Chews starting next month.

Initially Antos Limited was closely linked with Antos BV in the Netherlands, but over time the company started to manufacture and distribute more and more of its own products, so it became natural to change the name.
Nova Dog Chews will always offer the same great customer experience, fast delivery and a huge product range, general manager Antoon Murphy told the pet business world – and Antos branded products from the Netherlands will always be too. available.
âAs we develop our product line with more and more of our own products and sell across Europe and beyond, it makes sense to have our own brand,â he said.
âThe company will be called Nova Dog Chews, which is punchy, easy to remember and translates easily across Europe. Our customers shouldn’t notice much of a difference in the daily service they receive.
âWe are launching a new business website at www.novadogchews.com, which will allow customers to place orders, view products, ingredients, photos, prices as well as view their account history at the same in law. “
The company recently opened a manufacturing plant and distribution center in France. With locations in both Ayrshire, Scotland and Savoy, it is now truly international and able to efficiently serve customers across Europe.
The UK branch of the company will continue to serve UK customers and the French company will supply all European customers.
Antoon explained that the changes came as exporting became increasingly difficult with new requirements for export health certificates and customs declarations after Brexit. With a modern two-story warehouse, office space and manufacturing space, Nova Dog Chews is set for years to come to grow the company’s export business.
“It became clear at the start of the year that in order to maintain and develop our sales abroad, we would need a presence in the EU’s single market,” he said. âWe moved very quickly to securing warehouses and offices. We quickly set up machinery, personnel, inventory and packaging.
âWe started selling in April and had exceptional sales in our first month. Both sites in Scotland and France continue to strengthen, with UK sales up 30-40% from last year. We could not be happier with the success we have had during a very difficult year.
