CCMP Capital buys up Canadian vitamin maker Jamieson Laboratories


US and Europe-focused growth equity investor CCMP Capital has acquired Jamieson Laboratories, a Canada-based manufacturer and distributor of vitamins and supplements.

The company will see Jamieson founder and chairman Eric Margolis retain a seat on the board of directors, with CEO Vic Neufeld remaining in the role.

CCMP focuses on consumer, industrial energy and healthcare sectors. The company’s portfolio already includes New Jersey-based Vitamin Shoppe, a specialty retailer and direct marketer of vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, herbs, sports nutrition formulas, homeopathic remedies and other health-related products.

CCMP Capital spun out of J.P. Morgan in August 2006, closing a $3.4bn the following year. The firm is said to be nearing a final close for its $3.5bn-targeting third fund, while it recentlylost senior executive Robert McGuire after three and a half years at the firm.
