LANSING, Mich. — NEOGEN Corporation announced today that it has acquired Delf, a United Kingdom-based manufacturer and supplier of animal hygiene and industrial cleaning products.

Since Delf's founding in 1928, the company has grown from one of the main soap manufacturers in Liverpool to offer a wide range of animal hygiene and specialty chemical products. Delf is a select member of the Iodine Registration Group (IRG), allowing it to supply Article 95 PVP-iodine and iodine-based biocidal products to the U.K. and European Union animal hygiene markets.

"We are very pleased to have Delf join NEOGEN," said Dr. Jason Lilly, NEOGEN's vice president of international business. "We believe that Delf's more than 40 years of experience in the U.K. dairy hygiene market will be of great benefit to NEOGEN as we look to expand our offerings of performance dairy chemicals. Delf's products synergistically complement our Quat-Chem disinfectant and cleaner offerings, enhancing our portfolio and helping to keep people and animals around the world safe and healthy."

"Joining NEOGEN is an exciting opportunity for us," says Chris Jones, managing director at Delf. "Over the years, we have put a lot of effort into our range of specialty chemicals and dairy hygiene products, and we are excited to see how those offerings continue to grow with the expertise and backing of the NEOGEN team."
