W. R. MEADOWS, Inc. has acquired Mississauga-based Gemite Products, Inc. The company reports that the acquisition complements its waterproofing and restoration portfolio. For more than 20 years, W. R. MEADOWS served as Gemite Products, Inc.’s exclusive distributor for Canada and the U.S., beyond the East Coast region.
“W. R. MEADOWS looks forward to further advancing Gemite’s unique technologies for repairing, protecting and waterproofing reinforced concrete structures,” said Glenn Tench, vice president of Sales and Marketing.
A manufacturer of advanced technologies, Gemite Products was founded more than 30 years ago by Igor Nikolajev, who served as the company’s president, and the late Ivan Razl, Ph.D., who served as technical director. The partners developed a line of composite waterproofing and restoration products designed to protect reinforced concrete structures in challenging environments around the world.
“Having worked closely with W. R. MEADOWS for decades, we saw their commitment to quality and product integrity was genuine,” Nikolajev said. “My late business partner Ivan Razl and I worked hard to build Gemite Products, Inc. to this point, and I feel comfortable seeing W. R. MEADOWS further our legacy of innovation.”
