(CLEVELAND — Oct. 3, 2022 — Hospeco Release) — Hospeco Brands Group, an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of personal care, cleaning and protection products serving the entire away-from-home marketplace, is adding another influential name to its formative brands by acquiring ChemCor Chemical Corp. Based in Southern California, ChemCor is a leading manufacturer and distributor of specialty chemical products for the foodservice, healthcare, industrial and janitorial markets. With the acquisition, the formative brands of Hospeco Brands Group now include Acute Care, Adenna, ChemCor, Hospeco, High-Tech Conversions and Nilodor.
ChemCor core products include cleaners targeting floor care, kitchens, restrooms and laundry, as well as disinfectants, sanitizers, degreasers and hand soaps. The company boasts more than 3,000 SKUs as well as proprietary formulations and in-house chemical blending capabilities. ChemCor is highly sought-after for private label products and forges strong relationships with its customers, resulting in an impressive 99% customer retention rate.
Its California base of operations opens up strategic opportunities for Hospeco Brands Group to serve its customers in the western half of the U.S. even more efficiently, while an existing East Coast footprint will expand national availability of ChemCor products.
The acquisition expands product availability for Hospeco Brands Group, giving customers an even deeper bench of cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing products from which to choose, while ChemCor products are complemented by the wide offering of Hospeco Brands Group products for the same and other markets.
“We’re excited to join Hospeco Brands Group,” said Brett Tarquin, senior vice president of operations at ChemCor. “Our existing customer base gains additional value and experience. Because our product lines are complementary, this partnership aligns to position our customers for greater success.”
This agreement follows Hospeco’s acquisition of Acute Care and Nilodor in 2019.
