Thornton & Ross Ltd acquires Natures Aid Ltd

November 2016
Thornton & Ross Ltd, based in Huddersfield, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Natures Aid business, a leading UK manufacturer and distributor of premium quality branded vitamins, minerals, food supplements and herbal products. Founded in 1981, Natures Aid is based in Preston, Lancashire, where it employs approximately 60 staff and has particular expertise in the manufacture of tablets and capsules, with significant distribution in the health food store sector, as well as in on-line retailing.

Commenting on the purchase, Barry Draude, the Managing Director of Thornton & Ross, said that the Natures Aid business would bring exciting new opportunities to both companies, as well as the broader STADA Group, T&R's parent company. Mr Draude added that there are a number of potential portfolio synergies between T+R and Natures Aid, which could be exploited quite quickly.

Thornton & Ross Ltd. manufactures and markets a range of consumer and prescription medical products, including Covonia cough medicines, Hedrin head lice treatment, the Care range of medicines, the Cetraben and Zero dermatological brands, Flexitol footcare products and the Fultium range of Vitamin D3 products via its Internis subsidiary. The business is part of STADA Arzneimittel AG which is based in Bad Vilbel, Germany.

Dieno George, STADA Executive Vice President with responsibility for branded products, commented that the acquisition of Natures Aid continued STADA's strategy of building their branded offering with high quality products which offer potential for internationalisation through STADA affiliates across Europe.
