Wisconsin Pharmacal Company Acquires Premier Filling Company Inc.
JACKSON, Wis., April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Wisconsin Pharmacal Company, manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, personal care and outdoor health and safety products, recently acquired substantially all of the assets of Premier Filling Company Inc. out of Geneva, IL. Most notably, this acquisition will bring Premier’s Bag-on-Valve (BOV) filling capabilities in-house at Wisconsin Pharmacal Company’s Jackson, WI facility.
BOV aerosol technology works by using compressed air around a filled bag-on-value unit inside a can as the pressure necessary to propel the product out of the can. Although bag-on-valve continuous sprays look like traditional aerosol cans from the outside, this superior spray dispensing system offers a multitude of benefits over traditional aerosols, including:
- Environmentally friendly – contains no harmful propellants and completely recyclable
- 360° Spray – can be sprayed in any direction, even upside down, with no pumping or shaking
- 100% Emptying – dispenses 100% of the product in the can
- 100% Formula – a BOV is filled with 100% of actual formula with no need for propellants, giving it a longer shelf life and the ability to have a sterilize final product
“We’re really excited to have completed this acquisition,” said John Wundrock, President and CEO of Wisconsin Pharmacal Company. “Bringing the ability to fill BOV products in-house not only expands our capabilities for contract manufacturing opportunities, but also puts us in a proprietary position for our existing branded BOV products and will allow us to expand on those branded offerings.”
Wisconsin Pharmacal currently offers the first available 100% Deet BOV as well as the first Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus insect repellent product available in a continuous spray, under their Coleman® Insect Repellents brand (www.ColemanRepellents.com). They also have plans to extend the technology into their MG217® line of psoriasis and eczema treatment products in the near future.
