Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based Raabe Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quest Specialty Chemicals Inc., announced today the acquisition of Foxcolor Inc., located in Oshkosh, Wis. Raabe is a manufacturer of branded custom matched touch-up paint and provider of private label aerosol paint filling services. Raabe's touch-up products consist of ready-to-apply paints that closely match original equipment coatings and are used to repair the surfaces of industrial and commercial products along all points of the supply chain.

"The acquisition of Foxcolor adds an important market segment to Raabe's branded (Precision Color) touch-up paint business," says Frederick Quinn, CEO of Quest Specialty Chemicals. Foxcolor will be immediately integrated into the production and operations of Raabe's facility in Menomonee Falls. "The integration of Foxcolor will bring added production capability and flexibility to Raabe's touch-up business and will allow us a greater capability in serving all aspects of the touch-up market from aerosols to pens, bottles, quarts and gallon packaging," says Gerry Loftus, COO of Quest and Raabe. Raabe also announced that Jason Plachetka will join Raabe from Foxcolor as national accounts manager.
