Green Bay-based NPS Corporation, a market leading Spill Control and Towel and Tissue products manufacturer, announced today it has acquired Evolution Sorbent Products LLC. Headquartered in Chicago, ESP offers a wide variety of industrial spill control and secondary containment products.

Founded in 2004, ESP manufactures a variety of Spill Control Products out of two manufacturing facilities, one located in West Chicago and second facility located in Oldham in the United Kingdom.

“The acquisition of ESP will enable NPS to offer our customers improved customer service, enhanced product development and is another step toward achieving a world-class operational footprint. I am delighted to welcome the ESP customer base to the NPS fold,” said Andrew Hetzel Jr., President and CEO of NPS Corporation.

“I am pleased to announce ESP has been purchased by NPS. The combined operations will provide a more extensive line up of products to both NPS and ESP customers. Many industries are consolidating and combining NPS and ESP will give our distribution partners products, services, reach and protection that is unrivaled in our space”, said ESP CEO Bryan Sims.

 The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

NPS was founded in 1996, with the purchase of a small, specialty packaging business from Kimberly-Clark Corporation.  Since that time, NPS’ passion is to provide the best customer care possible.  Through numerous acquisitions and organic growth, NPS has broadened its bundle of products and customer base to become a worldwide leader in Spill Control Products and is a fast growing player in the North American Away From Home Towel and Tissue marketplace.
