MINNEAPOLIS — MGK, the family-owned provider of insect control solutions to a wide variety of markets, announced the sale of one of its subsidies, Baltimore-based ICR Inc., to i2L Research Ltd. ("i2L") of Cardiff, UK.

The sale of ICR strengthens MGK's strategic focus on its core business of creating responsible insect control products that protect people and their environments, added Gullickson. "We are very pleased to find a strategic buyer in i2L Research Ltd."

Dr Peter McEwen, CEO of i2L, stated that "the acquisition of ICR, Inc., which will now trade as i2LResearch USA, Inc., is a hugely important development, which places us at the heart of the two most important economies in the world, the EU and the USA"
