Philadelphia-based hygiene and health company Essity has acquired wiping and cleaning company Legacy Converting, Inc.
Financial details were not announced.
Legacy, based in New Jersey, manufactures sanitizing and disinfecting wet-wipes, chemical-ready wipes and dry wipes, which will expand Essity’s Tork professional hygiene portfolio.
With an expanded professional hygiene offering — and a more profound surface cleaning and disinfecting expertise — Essity said it will be easier to “fulfill customers’ sustainable hygiene needs through one partner.”
“As the maker of the global leading Tork professional hygiene brand, we are committed to offering customers a full suite of innovative sustainable hygiene products and services,” said Don Lewis, president professional hygiene at Essity.
“The acquisition of Legacy Converting, Inc. strengthens our wiping and cleaning product expertise and offering and is a step in our expansion of this product area.”
Essity offers complete hygiene solutions through the Tork brand, including toilet paper, paper hand towels, napkins, hand soap, hand sanitizers, dispensers and wiping and cleaning products.
