KIK Custom Products, the parent company of BioLab, has acquired NC Brands, a leading provider of specialty chemicals and related pool and spa products. While industry acquisitions are increasingly common, the scale of this merger is significant: NC Brands rapidly expanded its portfolio over the last several years with the acquisitions of Red Leopard, SeaKlear, Natural Chemistry and Coral Seas.

“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.”

Mark Munford, CEO of NC Brands, states, “Our mission over the last 30 years was to create and deliver exceptional products to improve the swimming pool experience. 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.”
