The assets of Precision Chemical and Equipment LLC in Baton Rouge have been acquired by Target Specialty Products, a national wholesale distributor of pest management and turf and ornamental products. 

The acquisition gives the Sante Fe Springs, California, distributor a 42nd U.S. service center.

“The growth in customer demand in greater New Orleans and the surrounding area has allowed for Target Specialty Products to expand our business by adding another service center,” said Todd Ferguson, head of Target Specialty Products.

Shawn and Shae Robinson, former owners of Precision Chemical, will join Target Specialty Products and assist in the transition of the company.

“Combining the reach and expertise of Target Specialty Products is a great compliment to the local business we have created in Louisiana. This will help drive value for our clients while improving customer service,” Shawn Robinson said.

Target Specialty Products has 80 years of industry experience as a wholesale distributor in the United States and Canada for pest control and turf and ornamental products, application equipment, supplies, services, education and training programs. Private and public sectors it serves are aquatic, forestry and vector control; golf course, turfgrass and landscape maintenance; nurseries; structural pest control, fumigation and vegetation management.
