The two leading innovators of sunless tanning equipment and products, MagicTan® Corp, manufacturers of the VersaSpa® Skin Care System, and Mystic Tan®, manufacturers of the MyMyst™ System, announce that they will join together to become one entity. The new organization will adopt the name MT Industries, Inc. (MTI) and will be headquartered in Macedonia, Ohio.

"Combining our resources - including the assets (financial and human resources) and experience (engineering, design and research and development) - will result in a company with the means to produce more cutting edge products and an expanded marketing budget to reach more consumers," said Scott Thomason, president & CEO of the joint company. "Ultimately, our intention and #1 priority is to promote sunless tanning to consumers on a global scale and thus drive more users to our customers' locations."

The leadership structure for the new organization will include:
Scott Thomason, President and CEO (formerly of MagicTan)
George Carriker, Vice Chairman and COO (formerly of MagicTan)
Ben Hinterlong, Chairman of the Board (formerly of Mystic Tan)
David Block, Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance (formerly of Mystic Tan)
Kip Cooper, Vice President of Manufacturing and Service (formerly of MagicTan)
Tim Hicks, Senior Vice President of Sales for the Mystic Tan Brand (formerly of Mystic Tan)
Mark DeMayo, Senior Vice President of Sales for the VersaSpa by MagicTan Brand (formerly of MagicTan)
Kimberley Carrasco, Vice President of Customer Support (formerly of MagicTan)

Both brands will retain their individual features and identities. Marketing, engineering and sales departments will remain separate, while the manufacturing, shipping and administration will be combined to increase operational efficiency.

"We are committed to honor the loyalty of our customers with unprecedented customer service and will continue to provide support dedicated to the owners' specific brand. Neither brand is more superior to the other; both have proven their stability in the industry. We just want to make sunless tanning even more popular than it already is," said Thomason.

The sunless tanning industry (including automated systems, professional applications and self-apply products) is estimated to be a $230 million industry, according to research group Mintel.
