After manufacturing and supplying analytical reagents, indicators and biological stains for more than 50 years John D Bolton has retired and the business has been acquired by DC Fine Chemicals. “In addition to other laboratory reagents, John’s business has been a particularly strong supplier of biological stains and indicators, for example Hematoxylin and his trademarked iodine indicator, Vitex. This acquisition will give us an opportunity to begin manufacturing some products as well as expanding our customer base.”, said Lenny Loeb, Managing Director of DC Fine Chemicals. “The business and its ethos of quality align closely with that of DC’s so we expect the integration of the business to be seamless. We already offer most of the range supplied by John D Bolton.”

John Bolton, sole principal of John D Bolton, said “We were looking for a company to take over our business and continue providing excellent customer service to our customers. We are confident about transferring the business to a stable and well managed company like DC Fine Chemicals.”
