N.C. firm buys QC Corp.

Verdesian Life Sciences LLC on Tuesday announced that it has acquired QC Corp., of Baltimore, a fertilizer producer. The combined company will continue to be owned by Paine & Partners.  Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The Gordon family will continue to lead the day-to-day operations of QC and manage QC customer relationships, Verdesian said.  Jason Gordon will serve as president of QC, and QC’s employees will remain with the business, Verdesian said. Verdesian, based in Cary, North Carolina, also is a fertilizer firm. “This combination advances Verdesian’s position as a market leader,” Kevin Schwartz, president of Paine & Partners, said in a statement. “… We expect that the combination will bring QC’s expertise increasingly into Verdesian’s core agricultural markets, while QC’s lawn and garden and turf and ornamental customers will see new applications for Verdesian’s proprietary products.”
