PL Developments, a manufacturer of generic over-the-counter medicine, recently reached agreements to sell a pain reliever, beauty products and family planning tests produced by other companies.

The Westbury-based business, which is also called PLD, plans to package and sell the products. They include naproxen sodium softgel capsules for pain relief, skin creams and lotions, nail polish remover and pregnancy tests.

The products will supplement PLD's line of pills and liquid medicine for treating colds, allergies, pain, motion sickness, digestive ailments and sleeping problems. The liquids came to PLD last year when it acquired Aaron Industries of Clinton, S.C. for an undisclosed amount.

PLD's products are sold under the store brands of major retail chains such as Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Costco and Family Dollar.

"Our vision is to provide our partners a solution for every aisle in their store . . .[and] adding capabilities in the health and beauty care and family planning categories is strategically important," said PLD chief executive Mitch Singer.
