Feb 03, 2015

Vertellus closed on its acquisition of The Dow Chemical Company’s sodium borohydride (SBH) business. The acquisition expands Vertellus’ life sciences business, adding new process aids and synthesis capabilities to the company’s asset structure. The purchase follows the November 2014 purchase by Vertellus of Pentagon Chemicals (Holdings) UK Ltd., expanding the company’s agrochemical offerings in the life science sector.  With the completion of both acquisitions, revenues from life science applications constitute more than 65 percent of the company’s total revenue.
