large animal veterinary practitioners.
This acquisition further expands Ceva’s footprint in North America.  Centaur’s broad range of products, including nutraceuticals, joint therapies and infection-control products, along with an experienced staff will provide Ceva with an excellent base for its expansion in the Canadian market. “The move helps in marketing and distributing current Ceva products,” said Craig Wallace, North America Zone Director for Ceva, “and will serve as a strong foundation for future product launches.”
“Canada is an important world economy where we needed to have a direct presence,” said Marc Prikazsky, CEO of Ceva Santé Animale. “Integrating the two companies will lead to an expansion of networks for both teams, and continues Ceva’s growth into new markets.”
