BY Ryan Chavis

MINNEAPOLIS — UltiMed — a manufacturer and distributor of pen needles, insulin syringes and other injection-related products — has been acquired by LDI, an Indianapolis-based family office that invests in growth-oriented businesses. 
 
UltiMed has been providing diabetic injection devices for more than 25 years, and its products are complemented by a dispense-and-dipose packaging system that lets patients easily and safely dispose of used sharps. 
 
“Our manufacturing business is a great fit with LDI,” said Jim Erickson, UltiMed president. “Our new relationship with LDI will give us greater resources to provide enhanced products and services. This will help our business partners and healthcare professionals better treat and manage the needs of their customers and patients. We welcome LDI’s experience in building businesses and their culture as a family office. We are excited to partner together to grow our business.”
 
The acquisition represents an exciting opportunity for LDI, which is led by president and CEO J.A. Lacy:  “Jim Erickson and the UltiMed management team have built a growing and profitable company based on high‐quality, user‐friendly products and a commitment to customer service,” Lacy said. “We are excited to work with the UltiMed team on a strategy to accelerate their growth and welcome them to the LDI family.”

"We've seen increased interest in our products for hard surfaces other than hardwood, particularly with our retailer audience," said Chad Nordhagen, director of marketing, Bona US. "The new Bona Stone, Tile and Laminate Wet Cleaning Pads are a perfect complement to any home for quick and easy cleaning."
 
The pads can clean a 15-in. extra-wide section of floor with every stroke and the disposable pad is larger than most cleaning pads currently available on the market, the company said. Consumers can purchase the product exclusively at Bed, Bath & Beyond and at MyBonaHome.com for $9.99.

BY Antoinette Alexander

NORTH LIMA, Ohio — Perfecta Products is further expanding its portfolio with the new Zim's Advanced Vapor Rub, available in both a traditional jar and a tube with no-mess applicator.
 
"When you talk to consumers, their number one complaint about vapor rubs is that they can be messy. We take the mess out of the vapor rub with our new easy to apply applicator,” stated Mark Smith, Perfecta Products' director of marketing and sales.
 
Zim's Advanced Vapor Rub is 100% natural and contains natural menthol, arnica extract, aloe vera, camphor, coconut oil, white beeswax and eucalyptus globulus. The product will begin appearing on shelves of independent and regional drug stores by the end of the year.

The vapor rub is the second major healthcare product Zim's has rolled out in the past two months. Earlier this year, Zim's unveiled a new Zim's Cold Sore kit to help treat and address the symptoms of cold sores.
