CARY, N.C. - SantoLubes, owner of Prentiss LLC, announced the acquisition of Cary, N.C. based Envincio, which offers post-patent and select branded products for the pest control market. SantoLubes will integrate Envincio with the Prentiss business.
 
George Garrison, president and chief executive officer of SantoLubes, will assume the president and chief executive officer role of Prentiss. Randy Canady, founder and chief executive officer of Envincio, will assume the chief operating officer position and will be charged with the strategic direction and day-to-day management. 
 
Former Prentiss President Larry Eichler has announced his retirement from day-to-day operations, but will serve in an advisory capacity as chairman. Eichler will continue to represent Prentiss on the United Producers Formulators & Distributors (UPFDA) board, where he currently serves as president.
 
"The combined Prentiss business offers a well-rounded platform poised for growth with a solid portfolio including fully-integrated positions on key active ingredients," said Garrison. "From synthetic chemistries to botanical alternatives to 25b exempt product offers, we look forward to offering pest management professionals and customers across all segments multiple tools to meet their customer needs."
 
"It is a rare opportunity to be a part of a business dating back to 1919," said Canady. "We are excited about where our vision will take this next phase. We have a passion for the industry and are anxious to put our team of talent to work for our customers." 
 
SantoLubes acquired Prentiss in October 2008 and subsequently acquired exclusive rights to the patented EcoSMART Technologies portfolio for the professional markets in March 2009. With this latest acquisition of Envincio, the combined business will focus on the professional pest control, vector, industrial-janitorial-sanitation, farm hygiene and animal health segments.
