Radians continues USA manufacturing expansion with acquisition of VisionAid
Radians, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high performance Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), announced today that it has acquired Massachusetts-based VisionAid, Inc. VisionAid manufactures SideShields, portable emergency eyewash stations, and lens cleaning products with a variety of custom packaging options.
According to Radians’ CEO, Mike Tutor, “The acquisition of VisionAid allows Radians to continue building our manufacturing operations in the United States, just as our acquisition of Carolina Safety Sport did over three years ago for our high visibility clothing line. Expanding our US manufacturing operations enables Radians to be a better supply chain partner because of reduced lead times as well as having better quality control over processes and product,” stated Tutor. In addition to amplifying Radians’ USA manufacturing operations, the acquisition allows for customizing lens cleaning products with a customer’s logo and name, and also provides Radians with additional injection molding capabilities.
The VisionAid management team will remain the same, and VisionAid will continue operating from its current facility in Wareham, Massachusetts, where orders will be entered and shipped by VisionAid employees.
Daniel McCarthy, President of VisionAid, stated, “The collective strength of the Radians sales and marketing team will help to drive additional growth of our products and open up new markets in the industrial and retail channels.”
