Comfort Research, the creator of Big Joe, has acquired Spin Master’s Outdoor manufacturing operations in Tarboro, N.C., and specific product lines from Spin Master’s Outdoor portfolio. The acquisition closed on February 7, 2022.
Included in the sale is the High Performance Aquaria Swim Float line, featuring proprietary “Aqua Cell” technology that resists weather, aging, ultraviolet rays and water absorption. Spin Master’s “Swim Noodle” products, including the Mega Noodle and Aqua Rider Squirter product line, are also included in the acquisition.
Spin Master’s 268,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant, with capacity for 18MM + units per year, and a 90,000 sq. ft. distribution facility in Tarboro, N.C., are also part of the acquisition. Comfort Research has offered employment to employees in these two Tarboro’s facilities.
“This acquisition immediately expands our portfolio of swim products to meet the significant growth in demand from our customers and end consumers,” says Comfort Research CEO, Jeff Werner.
“This acquisition also gives us additional new US based manufacturing technologies and will further leverage our national distribution model,” says Comfort Research CFO, Scott Johnson.
