Metron buys Prudential’s consumables division

JUNE 17–IRVINE, Calif.—Prudential Cleanroom Services, a laundry services provider, has sold its consumable products distribution business to Metron Technology, a United Kingdom-based distributor of contamination control products and services.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, yet officials from both companies classified the deal as a collaboration that will strengthen product offerings to customer bases of both firms.

“It’s a partnership,” says Tom Watts, president of Prudential Overall Supply, parent of Prudential Cleanroom Services. “They are involved in consumables to a heavier degree than we are, whereas our specialty is the laundry end of it. There is a synergy between our organizations, and with the two of us partnering, we can grow the businesses better and faster as well as give better service our respective customers.”

Officials at Metron could not be reached for comment, but Dennis Riccio, the company’s president and chief operating officer, did say in a statement that the firm is pleased with the partnership.
