Hospeco Acquires Canadian Manufacturer

February 24, 2023

Hospeco Brands Group (HBG) has purchased Ontario, Canada-based manufacturer Innocore.

The acquisition expands HBG’s product portfolio by adding Innocore’s Touch Point® and Certainty® Brands premoistened, non-woven, surface and personal wipes, and other hand care products. Existing Innocore customers will also have access to HBG’s full product line, expanding the company’s North American footprint. Per the terms of the deal, Innocore’s full management team will continue to oversee the business under the HBG umbrella.

“The addition of Innocore to Hospeco Brands Group provides us with a stronger Canadian infrastructure, which in turn allows us to better support our current Canadian distribution partners,” said Bill Hemann, HBG executive vice president. “As our north-of-the-border distribution shifts to Innocore’s Ontario base, our partners can look forward to reduced lead times, an expanded product offering, and resident support. It’s very exciting.”
