Announced at the end of January, KIK Custom Products Inc., the parent company of BioLab, Inc. (makers of BioGuard and SpaGuard), acquired NC Brands L.P. NC Brands manufactures specialty chemicals and related products for recreational pools and spas in North America and uses naturally-based enzyme technology in pool and spa water care.
“The acquisition of NC Brands reflects our commitment to growing our pool business and adding to our portfolio of leading brands,” says Jon Viner, president of BioLab. “We will benefit from NC Brands’ exceptional market recognition in the specialty chemicals category, strong customer relationships, innovative and unique technology and niche product mix, which are complementary to BioLab’s existing portfolio. We are very excited to welcome NC Brands to the BioLab team, and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead for the combined business, our customers, partners and the end consumers that we serve.”
“Our mission over the last 30 years was to create and deliver exceptional products to improve the swimming pool experience,” says Mark Munford, CEO of NC Brands. “The addition of our successful specialty chemical product lines to BioLab’s scale and reach will enable our brands to continue growing and bring our unique products to a wider audience.”
