ST. LOUIS -- Americo Chemical Products, Inc. ("Americo"), is now part of the Harbour Group family of companies, Jeff Fox, Harbour Group's chairman and chief executive officer, announced today. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Americo is a leading provider of innovative chemical solutions for industries that require surface treatment of metal and other substrates, as well as waste-water treatment. The company, which is headquartered in Elgin, IL was founded in 1989 by Chris Bozin, who will continue to serve as CEO.

In partnering with Harbour Group, Americo will be in an even stronger position to scale in its existing market, while focusing on expanding its product offering and end market applications."

Mr. Bozin added, "We are thrilled to join the Harbour Group family. The firm is well known for its strong reputation of building great businesses and operational excellence. Harbour Group's vast resources and longstanding track record of success will help guide Americo through its next phase of growth, both organically and through complementary acquisitions.
