BioBax acquire Aqua Air.

4th July, 2022


BioBax Ltd of Skelmanthorpe, West Yorkshire has acquired Cheshire-based Aqua Air Ltd as part of a strategic move to expand its range of environment-friendly cleaning products and solutions.


The acquisition follows a period of growth for BioBax with increased demand from customers looking to buy more eco-friendly products, including Zybax microbiological products and Meleco, the magic eraser.

Kate Pawson and Dominic Barnes started BioBax in 2019, to develop and grow the Zybax and Meleco brands which are now 22 years old.  BioBax products are manufactured in-house at their state-of-the-art facility in the rural setting of Skelmanthorpe, West Yorkshire.

“Aqua Air is the perfect partner for BioBax”, said Kate Pawson, Sales and Marketing Director, “they have very similar values to BioBax’s .  I am looking forward to meeting Aqua Air’s customers and working with them over the years to come.”


Aqua Air Ltd was founded in 1994, by Barry Bladon and latterly co-owned with his son Simon. Barry has obsessively developed each one of the Aqua Air products to respond to the specific cleaning challenges and needs of their clients, with the result that each product offers added performance relative to the competition. Each one of their Xtra range of cleaning solutions is designed, manufactured and bottled in the UK, contains biodegradable components and packaging and avoids harsh chemicals which can damage skin and surfaces.   

Barry Bladon said: “It has been key for us to join forces with a company who share our philosophy and passion for solving our customers cleaning needs with amazing products and a personalised service. BioBax already have a strong reputation for the supply of environmentally-friendly cleaning products, and expanding the Aqua Air portfolio with a range of kitchen, hospitality and janitorial chemicals and cleaning machines will mean that BioBax and Aqua Air customers will now benefit from the expanded range of world class products and service.”
