Exacto Inc. will significantly increase its capacity to develop, manufacture and distribute adjuvant products that enhance chemicals used for crop protection, pest control and vegetation management through a move to larger quarters custom-designed for lean manufacturing and quality control.

Exacto, whose adjuvants and surfactants are sold by other companies under private labels, is doubling its space by the move to a 50,000-square-foot facility in Sharon, Wis., from its original location about 20 miles southeast in Richmond, Ill.

“Exacto continues to be blessed by the confidence and support of our many customers, suppliers and employees, and I am pleased to announce this progressive step for our company,” said Diana Braun, Exacto’s president.
Private Labelers Rely on Exacto.

The company works in the wholesale market, creating and selling adjuvants and surfactants for its customers’ private labels. Its customers market into agriculture, forestry, utilities and rights of way, highly managed turf, home and garden, range and pasture and vegetation management. Exacto products improve the action of pesticides and other vegetation-control chemicals, and increase application efficiency.

Exacto has seen steady growth since it was founded in 1981 when it initially focused on formulas that enhance drift reduction properties of crop protection products. Its product lineup has expanded broadly since then, and its clients have come to rely on Exacto for its niche packaging capabilities, technical and scientific expertise in product development, in-house label design as well as its marketing expertise.

Exacto currently employs about 25 people. In Sharon, its address will be at 200 Old Factory Rd., near Wisconsin Highway 67 and Interstate Highway 43. A late November move-in date was planned. The company is on the web at www.exactoinc.com.
