AMGUARD Acquires Assets of American Bio-Systems

American Bio-Systems is a manufacturer of proprietary-formula microbial cleaning products BioMop-Plus and DrainGel.


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — AMGUARD Environmental Technologies, a subsidiary of American Vanguard Corporation, announced the acquisition of the product and trademark assets of American Bio-Systems.

American Bio-Systems was founded in 1996 as a manufacturer of proprietary-formula microbial cleaning products BioMop-Plus and DrainGel.

Both products remove organic waste through use of a consortium of endospore-forming Bacilli bacteria strains that are formulated to digest and eliminate organic material on floors and in drains.

“BioMop-Plus and DrainGel are a great fit with AMGUARD’s portfolio and our strategy to provide compelling biological solutions to the commercial pest control industry,” Shayne Wetherall, CEO of AMGUARD, said.

For more than 20 years, these products have been in restaurants, hotel kitchens and institutions that have persistent drain and fruit fly infestation.

“I’m extremely gratified BioMop-Plus and DrainGel will now be included in AMGUARD’s biological products lineup going forward,” said Morgan Timberlake, co-founder of American Bio-Systems. “AMGUARD’s dedication to providing quality products with excellent customer service to the pest management industry are the same guiding principles co-founder Joe Clark and I established when we founded American Bio-Systems in 1996.”
