The commercial youth seating line of Crystal Lake, Ill.- based Central Specialties Ltd. (CSL) has been acquired by Bobrick Washroom Equipment Inc. The line consists of high chairs, boosters and infant cradles.
Centennial, Colo.- based Koala Kare Products (KKP), a Division of Bobrick, will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the product line with its current offering in the foodservice and hospitality markets.
“CSL’s quality products will enhance KKP’s existing portfolio and expand customer categories with a variety of product designs, material selections and price points,” stated Brendan Cherry, vice president and general manager of Koala. “CSL’s seating products will be integrated into KKP’s Childcare line, but will initially ship from Central’s Illinois facility prior to the full transition.”
“Koala’s acquisition of CSL’s youth seating line will strengthen their position as the leading provider of commercial childcare products,” stated CSL president, Jay Maher.
Customers will continue to purchase through CSL until further notice. Integration updates will be available through CSL’s representatives and periodically posted on koalabear.com and csltd.com.
