Hospeco Brands acquires ChemCor

Hospeco Brands Group, a manufacturer and supplier of personal care, cleaning, and protection products serving the away-from-home marketplace, is acquiring ChemCor Chemical Corp.

ChemCorBased in Southern California, ChemCor is a manufacturer and distributor of specialty chemical products for the foodservice, healthcare, industrial, and janitorial markets. With the acquisition, Hospeco Brands Group brands 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 lists more than 3,000 SKUs as well as proprietary formulations and in-house chemical blending capabilities. 

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. 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 a 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.”

“We are excited to welcome Brett and his team at ChemCor into the Hospeco Brands Group family of companies. This acquisition reinforces our mission to provide a national program of best-in-class product/supply solutions in personal care, cleaning, and protection products for the away-from-home market,” said Bill Hemann, executive vice president of Hospeco Brands Group.
