Private equity company CCMP Capital buying vitamin maker Jamieson Laboratories

TORONTO - Jamieson Laboratories Ltd, maker of one of Canada's best-known brands of vitamins and nutrition supplements, is being sold to private equity firm CCMP Capital Advisors for an undisclosed price.

Jamieson chairman Eric Margolis says the deal, which is expected to close Jan. 31., will see the company benefit from new infusions of capital that will help fuel its growth, including expansion in the United States and internationally.

"It's time for me to pass the helm to a group of highly professional managers and experienced investors and operators," said Margolis, who has headed the company for 41 years.

With corporate offices in Toronto, Jamieson products are made at the company's laboratories in Windsor, Ont., and exported to more than 50 countries.

Established in 1922, Jamieson is Canada's largest manufacturer and distributor of vitamins, minerals and nutrition supplements.

CCMP Capital Advisors specializes in investments in the consumer-retail, industrial, health care and energy sectors.
