Griffin, Ga.-based Osmose, a global supplier of wood preservative products, announced today that it has completed the purchase of the wood preservatives business of Mattersmiths Holdings and Mattersmiths Technologies in New Zealand.
Mattersmiths’ business focuses primarily on the manufacture and sale of antisapstain chemicals and wood treatment technologies.
