The agreement covers the VisFlo, Reactor, Utopia, Formula ACC, Formula 388, SureSlide and PinKeeper brands worldwide in addition to the Duster and Cleaning Cloth.
The new partnership will be seamless for QubicaAMF customers.

Together we share a similar philosophy and passion for innovation in our respective fields,” says Jay Buhl, Executive Vice President for QubicaAMF.
“Our relationship goes back several years when Kegel began manufacturing some of the chemical products for QubicaAMF,” shares Chris Chartrand, Kegel CEO. “This is a very natural progression of our relationship and we are excited to see all that Kegel can bring to the QubicaAMF chemical line.”
Kegel began manufacturing several chemicals for QubicaAMF in 2014. This new agreement will expand Kegel’s role, leveraging their experience and expertise as the leading bowling chemical manufacturer. This will ensure Kegel’s continued high-quality standards of production and manufacturing, new product innovation as well as meeting global compliance for the QubicaAMF chemical line.
Customers will also notice a new modernized look for the whole product line. All products have been lab tested and bowler tested to ensure the same performance and characteristics of the original product.
