Utah's Black Diamond buys Swedish company

Utah-based outdoor gear maker Black Diamond Inc. is buying a Swedish company known for its helmets, body armor and goggles.

Black Diamond says it acquired Stockholm-based POC Sweden AB for $44.9 million.

It’s Black Diamond’s second major acquisition — it bought Sacramento, Calif.-based Gregory Mountain Products Inc., a manufacturer of specialized backpacks, in in June 2010.

Black Diamond president and chief executive Peter Metcalf says the two companies are fast-growing and innovative and complement the Salt Lake City-based maker of climbing, ski and camping gear. Standard-Examiner
