Blue Point Capital Partners-owned Hilco Vision has acquired Eye Care & Cure.
Eye Care & Cure is the eighth add-on acquisition for Hilco Vision, Blue Point's eyewear and eye care solutions platform, since its acquisition in May 2014.
The company distributes a broad range of optical supplies, offering over 4,000 unique SKUs. Based in Tucson, Ariz., with an additional distribution facility in Chicago, ECC has strong relationships with major pharmaceutical and ophthalmic supply companies across the globe.
“ECC has been a top-priority, strategic acquisition target for Hilco for several years,” Blue Point partner John LeMay said in a statement. “The company is a strong player in the pharmaceuticals and diagnostics product category, and a compelling strategic fit with Hilco’s existing ophthalmic business.”
Blue Point principal Jonathan Pressnell added, “ECC will increase Hilco’s management bench strength, distribution capabilities in the Western United States and bolster its competitiveness through a broader product portfolio.”
