ACME UNITED ACQUIRES EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS FOR NEW LINE OF SKIN CARE AND WOUND CARE PRODUCTS

 ACME UNITED ACQUIRES EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS FOR NEW LINE
 OF SKIN CARE AND WOUND CARE PRODUCTS
 FAIRFIELD, Conn., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Acme United Corporation (AMEX: ACU) announced today that it has signed an agreement with Renaissance Medical Inc., Dana Point, Calif., for the exclusive marketing and distribution rights in the United States for the Royl-Derm line of patented (pending) skin-care and wound care products.
 Acme United will distribute the five skin-care and two wound-care products in the Royl-Derm line to hospitals and the after-care market, along with its own sterile dressing trays, proprietary dressings and pressurized bandages. Acme United also has the right to distribute any future Royl-Derm products.
 "Royl-Derm is a highly desirable new product line that significantly broadens Acme United's wound-care capability," said Dwight C. Wheeler, president of Acme United. "Royl-Derm fits right in with our own wound- care line, and we will be able to market it along with our products."
 "We believe that Royl-Derm can be the leader in its product category, and we expect to realize substantial sales and profits from this line over the next five years," Wheeler added.
 The Royl-Derm products are the result of years of research and an unwavering commitment to quality. They have been specifically formulated to meet the needs of damaged skin by enhancing the moisturization and healing processes.
 The new products have been shown to relieve or eliminate the pain connected with skin burns, wounds, ulcers and blemishes, which are often experienced by elderly and bed-ridden patients.
 The Royl-Derm agreement is the second move made by Acme United to expand its medial products business this year. On Jan. 31, 1992, Acme United purchased the major portion of the U.S. medical products business of SePro Healthcare, Inc. The acquisition included exclusive distribution rights to an extensive line of pressure therapy bandages and specialized wound dressings.
 Acme United is a leading producer of metal disposable surgical instruments, sterile procedure trays, germicidal products and wound-care packs for use in hospitals and alternate care markets, as well as the largest producer of household shears, scissors, wooden rulers and yardsticks in the United States and Europe.
