CRL Purchase of Sommer & Maca Final, According to Company Websites

Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence (CRL) has completed its purchase of Cicero, Ill.-based Sommer & Maca Industries Inc., according to announcements posted on both the companies' websites today.

Sommer & Maca ceased to operate under its current name as of March 20. Since that date, Sommer & Maca's website has pointed its former customers to CRL. The website notes, "CRL's 19 North American warehouses will offer all Somaca products, and you can continue to use the Somaca Stock Numbers to place your orders with CRL."

CRL's site now includes an announcement, which reads, "On March 20, 2008, Sommer & Maca joined the CRL family of companies. CRL's 19 North American warehouses now offer all Somaca Products "

No word has been given as to how many employees have been hired by CRL as of Sommer & Maca's official close.

Officials at both CRL and Sommer & Maca were expected to release an announcement this week.
