Douglas to acquire Dow’s ProFume/Vikane business

US-based specialty products manufacturer Douglas Products (Liberty, Missouri) is to acquire Dow AgroSciences’ sulfuryl fluoride-based fumigants, ProFume and Vikane. Douglas Products manufactures and distributes sprays, fumigants, protectants and equipment. US-based private equity firm Altamont Capital Partners (Palo Alto, California) has provided capital to Douglas Products to support the acquisition. “Since acquiring Douglas in 2007, we've focused on adding new products to expand our specialty chemicals offerings, and the acquisition of Vikane and ProFume will further diversify our business within the pest control and agricultural markets,” says Douglas Products chief executive officer Bill Fuller.
