NAPA -- Lixit Corporation, as its name implies, is the largest small animal watering device manufacturer in the world, with a 70 percent market share in its category and revenues in excess of $10 million annually.  The firm has been growing at a double-digit rate for the past couple of years, despite a five percent decline during the recession. 

The company also produces feeding devices, animal care accessories, pet houses, pet exercise equipment and has a number of new product innovations in various development stages.

Lixit recently acquired and relocated Equitex, a company  originally based in Petaluma, combining a number of textile products for horses shows into the firm’s total product mix.

Lixit is also a leading manufacturer in the overall U.S. pet products industry, estimated to generate total consumer expenditures of $52.8 billion annually, according to the 2011-2012 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).
