Based in Santa Ana, California, Spill Magic manufactures a line of spill absorbency, hazmat and biohazard clean-up products. The company, which also operates a facility in Smyrna, Tennessee, employs 22 people and reported $6.3 million in revenue last year, with earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization of approximately $1.4 million.

“Spill Magic complements Acme United’s existing products within the office, industrial, retail, food service, and safety markets,” said Walter C.
