TA Associates plans to bulk up with Dymatize

December 8, 2010, 11:40 PM UTC

Private equity firm TA Associates is in talks to acquire nutritional supplement maker Dymatize, according to a Federal Trade Commission filing. No additional information was disclosed.

Farmers Branch, Texas-based Dymatize offers a wide range of products (over 200 SKUs), with a particular focus on athletes and body-builders. It sells both directly via its website and indirectly through retailers like GNC (which also may be about to switch owners).

Dymatize was launched in 1994 by Ted Casey, who remains the company’s CEO and primary owner (well, until TA signs the paperwork).

Fortune has left messages for both Casey and TA Associates, and will update this post if either one responds.
