Waco Startup Bosque Products Announces Key Licensing Agreement With United Industries Corporation

Bosque Products and United Industries Corporation - A Subsidiary of Spectrum Brands, Inc. - join forces in the marketing and sale of award-winning lawn-and-garden product Reach 'n Spray

WACO, Texas, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bosque Products recently announced that one of its signature products, the Reach 'n Spray, will be sold in stores as a Spectracide®-branded lawn and garden product. The exciting, new development is part of a licensing agreement with United Industries Corporation – A Subsidiary of Spectrum Brands, Inc., and a leading manufacturer of value brand consumer products for the home, lawn and garden, insect and weed control markets in the United States – which recognizes the usefulness of the Reach 'n Spray device for dispensing some of Spectracide brand's most sought-after aerosol products.

"We're excited to be doing business with United Industries," said Bosque Products President, Frank Drew. "The patented Reach 'n Spray has successfully sold for years, and now this licensing agreement will allow us to grow faster and vastly increase the marketing of our product to consumers and professionals who most need it. This development is a great boost for Bosque Products as we look toward the launch of our next round of innovative devices."

The Spectracide™ Reach 'n Spray allows aerosol products to be used in a cleaner, faster, safer way, complementing the extensive line of lawn-and-garden products already provided by United Industries for the do-it-yourself consumer market. For instance, the Spectracide® Pruning Seal product can be applied to fresh cuts on tree limbs and other tall plants more effectively with the Spectracide™ Reach 'n Spray. Additionally, insect nests that are high up under second story eaves can be sprayed safely and efficiently. The device fits all standard aerosol sprayer types and is for use with all can sizes.

"This licensing agreement between United Industries and Bosque is an excellent match that opens up a wealth of possibilities," said John Pailthorp, Division Vice President, Marketing. "Merging Bosque's innovative delivery system with effective insecticide aerosol formulations from our brands offers consumers an enhanced application method that offers ease-of-use and delivers more powerful results."

Bosque Products is an American business headquartered in Waco, Texas. Primary components of the Reach 'n Spray are produced and assembled in McGregor, Texas.
