Suterra LLC agrees to sell its UK industrial monitoring business to Curtis Gilmour Holding Co.

BEND, OREGON (December 21, 2015) - Suterra is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement to sell its Treforest, Wales-based business to Curtis Gilmour Holding Co. With this sale, Curtis Gilmour will acquire Agrisense Industrial Monitoring Ltd., which holds the assets, including the AgriSense® and Trappit® trademarks, employees and operations of Suterra's UK facilities that manufacture and market pest monitoring products for the professional pest control and home and garden markets under the "AgriSense" and "Trappit" brand names. The deal is expected to close in January.

The acquisition will bolster Curtis Gilmour's industry leadership position that includes ownership interests in other professional and retail pest control product and equipment companies.

"This transaction makes great strategic sense for both companies and will allow the customers to continue to receive the quality products they expect. Curtis Gilmour will continue to build on its strengths in this area and Suterra will continue to invest in our core markets. I'm excited for the future of the customers and the employees of Suterra and the family of Curtis Gilmour companies."
