Royal Heritage Acquisition Expands Share in Allergen Space
October 12, 2012,
National Allergy, founded in 1985, sells allergy mattress protectors, HEPA air purification systems, sinus relief products, bed bug treatments, respirator maskers, water filters and asthma products. It distributes more than 2 million patient brochures annually through 19,000 allergists as well as 500,000 direct mail catalogs.
"I've rolled up the leading companies in this space," said Jeffrey Tauber, ceo of Royal Heritage. While the company already distributes some of its product at retail, he said, "we haven't really made a major push at retail. Now we will."
Production for all four brands will be consolidated into National Allery's 182,000-square-foot factory in Cornelia, Ga., which operates using ETON automated sewing lines.
The acquisition also expands Royal Heritage allergen and bed bug reach into 17 countries in North America, Central America, Europe, Asia and Austrailia. To support its business in Europe, National Allery has manufacturing in Slovakia, which Tauber said the company would maintain.
