Pilot Chemical Co. recently announced it has acquired Mason Chemical Co. Together, the companies reportedly represent more than 100 years of successful family-based ownership and leadership as privately held businesses in the U.S.

“Both Pilot, established in 1952, and Mason, founded in 1968, are successful companies built by their respective founders’ families over many decades,” said Paul Morrisroe, chairman and CEO of Pilot Chemical. “The Pilot and Mason product lines are complementary and will allow us to build on synergies between the two companies. Customers of both companies will be better served through a more complete and expanded global product offering from Pilot.”

Mason Chemical Co. is a leader in the development, registration, and sale of quaternary ammonium compounds and related chemistries. The acquisition reportedly enhances Pilot Chemical’s household, industrial and institutional, personal care, and oil and gas product portfolios.

“Mason and Pilot share a strong history of innovation in the chemical industry,” said Gregg Mason, owner of Mason Chemical. “Having both of our product lines available from one source makes strategic sense. Together we can leverage our combined technologies, offering new solutions to our combined global customer base.”
