"IFK Isofluor is an excellent fit within SGPPL and we are pleased to welcome them to our company," said Tom Kinisky, President of SGPPL. "IFK has a strong brand identity and complements the products of SGPPL. Dieter Heuser and his son, Holger Heuser, have built a very strong business. We look forward to continuing the tradition which started in 1984 long into the future."
