TTN-McKenzie Taxidermy Supply has purchased Knoblochs Chemicals, effective October 18th 2016. The products will be manufactured and shipped from McKenzie’s Granite Quarry North Carolina headquarters and stocked at their distribution centers across the country.


Here is a copy of McKenzie’s official press release :

McKenzie Taxidermy Supply is proud to announce that Knoblochs Chemicals is now part of the McKenzie family of companies effective October 18, 2016. Knoblochs Chemicals has been providing chemicals for use in the taxidermy and tanning industries since 1984. It is the second company that Rocky and Sharron Losasso, previous owners of Knoblochs, have trusted McKenzie with. In 2013, Rocky and Sharron sold Jonas Taxidermy Supply to McKenzie with the purpose of preserving the company that they described as their life’s work. As they trust us with another one of their companies, we will continue to grow and preserve the company that is best described as a pioneer in the taxidermy and tannery chemical business.

McKenzie will manufacture and ship the Knoblochs products from our McKenzie facility in Granite Quarry, North Carolina. In addition, many of them will be stocked in our regional distribution centers located in TX, UT, WI and PA. Chad Davis, General Manager of McKenzie’s said, “We are excited about being a part of a new chapter in Knoblochs’ history and combining the strengths of our companies to deliver an even broader line of products and services to the taxidermy and tanning industry.”

As we begin serving your Knoblochs Chemicals needs, we look forward to forming new relationships and building on those we are already a part of. If you have any questions concerning McKenzie or Knoblochs Chemicals, please don’t hesitate to call McKenzie at 800 279-7985.
