PLANO, Texas, Feb. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Dogness (International) Corporation ("Dogness" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: DOGZ), a developer and manufacturer of a comprehensive line of Dogness-branded, OEM and private label pet products, today confirmed it does not currently expect a material impact from this week's winter storm and resulting power outages across Texas.
The Company noted its distribution facility in Plano, Texas has not been seriously impacted, nor has its ability to fulfill customer orders been materially impacted beyond short-term logistics delays due to poor road conditions and delays in trucking dispatches.
Silong Chen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dogness, commented, "Our thoughts are with fellow Texans, including Dogness' team members and the countless pets we strive to serve. The strength of this recent winter storm and power loss created a dangerous situation for both pets and pet parents, which we understand the power companies and state authorities are working to fix as quickly as possible. Dogness encourages all Texans to bring their pets inside during this challenging weather. Dogness made the strategic decision last fall to build our internal inventory of top selling, higher volume products in order to best serve customers' increasing demand levels going into and out of the important holiday season. This proactive strategy gives us added confidence we will be able to continue to fulfill higher order levels from our diverse customer base, which covers some of the largest pet product and lifestyle companies across all key channels – specialty, mass market, online/eCommerce and retail stores."
