AMBLER, Pa. — Allergy Technologies announces that it has expanded the availability of its ActiveGuard Mattress Liners in Florida through distribution by Southern Chemical & Equipment.

Southern Chemical & Equipment, known for its “no fine print” guarantee, now distributes ActiveGuard to its pest management professional (PMP) customer base. Located in Sarasota, Fla., and servicing PMPs typically within a 50-mile radius of its base location, ActiveGuard Mattress Liners are an ideal addition to their portfolio of products, according to Steve LaCroix, the company’s owner and operations manager.

“We’re proud to be carrying Allergy Technologies’ ActiveGuard because it’s a product that’s proven, tested and provides long-term performance,” said LaCroix. “My business focuses on serving small and mid-sized PMPs and they work with us because of our customer service and reputation, so delivering products that perform is a necessity. We envision a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Allergy Technologies.”

Joseph Latino, chief operating officer (COO) for Allergy Technologies, says the partnership with Southern Chemical & Equipment expands ActiveGuard’s presence in Florida.

“This new distribution agreement provides us with greater presence in Florida, which we have recognized as an area of the country that has become an expanding epicenter for bed bug infestations,” said Latino. “Being able to broaden the availability of ActiveGuard to reach PMPs of various sized companies is essential for the product’s growth, especially in this key southern market.”
