RGF Environmental Group Announces Strategic Purchase
Riviera Beach, Florida – RGF Environmental Group, Inc. announces the purchase of the assets of Biological Controls, Inc., a New Jersey manufacturer of commercial indoor air quality products since 1973. The Biological Controls purchase propels RGF Environmental Group (“RGF”) into the hospital and health care industry with the Microcon® series of FDA 510K compliant air filtration equipment. In addition to RGF’s existing air purification line of products, the Microcon® series and the AirMATION® series of diesel exhaust filtration systems will provide industry-leading air filtration solutions for a variety of applications such as government agencies, fire stations, municipal garages, police evidence rooms as well as residential whole home HEPA and carbon filtration.
RGF’s R&D engineers, headed by Walter B. Ellis, EVP/GM, are busy improving their new product lines and merging them with existing RGF’s proven technologies. All production will be done in RGF’s West Palm Beach facility under their ISO 9001:2015 certification standards. RGF has added a second level new management office and two assembly lines to their West Palm Beach compound to facilitate this and other pending acquisitions. Biological Controls’ existing sales force will merge into RGF’s IAQ sales force under the direction of Mat Charles, VP/IAQ Sales. Key Biological Controls employees have joined RGF. Tony Julian, VP of Business Development for RGF will manage the new group. The cash purchase was negotiated by Sharon B. Rinehimer, RGF’s Executive Vice President/General Counsel.
Ron Fink, RGF President/CEO stated: “This purchase takes RGF into new commercial markets with a company that brings with it Biological Controls’ 45-year history of sterling performance and over 22,688 satisfied clients and end users. The blending of sales forces will enhance each team’s product offering and use-applications exponentially. We believe the Biological Controls products will receive wide acceptance by our international sales force in 58+ countries including our China office and will catapult sales to new highs.”
