Waterford-based Avidity Science has announced its acquisition of CT Chemicals Inc. The acquisition furthers Avidity Science’s efforts to broaden its range of products and solutions supporting the research tools market.

Based in Lebanon, Ohio, CT Chemicals manufactures and sells filtration products including ion exchange and filtration media based solutions used in water purification applications. CT Chemicals’ broad range of products are widely used by pharmaceutical, biotech, academic and government customers.

“By expanding Avidity’s portfolio of water purification solutions to include ion exchange and filtration media and cartridges, this acquisition supports our objective of becoming a more valuable research tools partner and is another step forward in our mission of enabling science to improve the quality of life,” said Doug Lohse, Chief Executive Officer, Avidity Science.

“We are excited about how this combination strengthens our operations and expands the addressable opportunity for our unique solutions around the world,” said Greg Lalonde, President, CT Chemicals.

In August, Edstrom Industries LLC and its UK-based subsidiary Triple Red Limited, announced they will unify the company under the name Avidity Science. The change is a key part of the company’s strategic plan to build a diversified research solutions business that provides products and service needs of scientists and healthcare customers around the world.
