"Chem-Tech fits the Neogen model of supplementing our organic growth with growth through acquisitions," said Dr. Jason Lilly, Neogen's vice president of corporate development. "Like many of our acquisitions, we will be able to consolidate administrative, sales, and research and development with our existing groups. We expect to continue to operate the company's manufacturing facility in Iowa along with significant portions of its warehousing and distribution."
Chem-Tech's revenues for the most recent 12 months exceeded $14 million. The purchase price includes contingent payment consideration. No additional financial details were disclosed.
