Diversey to acquire Australia’s Tasman Chemicals
Diversey Holdings has entered into an agreement to acquire Tasman Chemicals – the Melbourne, Australia-based manufacturer of professional hygiene and cleaning solutions to the Institutional and Food & Beverage sectors with over 55 years of experience in the market.
Diversey says that the acquisition will enhance Diversey's position in the Australia and New Zealand markets and that the addition of Tasman's manufacturing infrastructure, in particular, which has facilities in Perth as well as Melbourne, provides exciting opportunities to integrate the business and expand Diversey’s product offering.
"The acquisition of Tasman Chemicals provides us with a strong manufacturing footprint, allowing for greater operational flexibility and responsiveness to customer requirements,” says its chief executive officer, Phil Wieland. “In addition, the strong reputation of Tasman will enable us to grow our position in the Australia and New Zealand markets."
Peter Keech, owner and managing director of Tasman Chemicals, says: "We are very pleased Tasman is now part of Diversey, one of the world's leading hygiene companies. Tasman and Diversey are well-aligned, and Tasman's clients and personnel will benefit from further expansion of the business and ongoing product innovation."
