Aeris’ Chief Executive Officer, Peter Bush, said of the partnership:

We are proud to have partnered with SABCO, the leading Australian consumer brand in the category. This opportunity allows us to grow a core range of Aeris’ product portfolio into the Australian retail channel. SABCO’s relationship with The Libman Group creates leverage into North America and beyond, with a strong partner that has over a century of experience in the field.
