Nisus Corp. acquired the assets of Lord’s Additives, the Sewell, N.J.-based manufacturer of ZB-SHIELD, and the holder of four patents involving innovative additives for wood and wood-plastic uses.

The purchase includes all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency registrations, product names and intellectual property.

Nisus is the largest purchaser of disodium octoborate tetrahydrate in the pest control industry, according to the company. Nisus receives immediate access to EPA registration and the existing customers.

The Lord’s Additives name will remain with the existing company; however, Lord’s will no longer be in the zinc borate business. Zinc borate is currently used as a preservative in oriented strand board, siding and other composite products, and is also used as a fire retardant.

“Zinc borate was a natural next step for Nisus Corp., as it is a great product for our Wood Preservation Division and our Agricultural Division that will sell liquid micronutrients,” said Kevin Kirkland, Nisus president and CEO.

Lord’s Additives was owned by Sandra and Steve Bales. “Working with Steve and Sandra Bales on this purchase has been a real pleasure,” Kirkland said. “They have built a wonderful business, and we look forward building on that success.”

Nisus’ mission is to offer quality, sustainable pest and wood preservative products to industry professionals while providing the lowest possible impact to the environment.
