On October 4, 2016, Ranir LLC, a leading global manufacturer of store brand oral care products and value branded oral care products under the Plackers and REMBRANDT trademarks, announced that it had acquired BrushPoint, a Toronto-based manufacturer of store brand manual and power toothbrushes. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition of BrushPoint is highly complementary to Ranir’s current portfolio of products and allows Ranir to leverage its innovation platform in the development, manufacture and marketing of store brand oral care products. The combined organization will have a more robust offering of products and services, enhanced manufacturing capabilities, and a broader distribution reach covering the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Miller Thomson advised BrushPoint in this transaction with a team that included Jennifer Bishop, Steven Wesfield and Gary Volman (corporate/M&A), Karen Durell (IP) and Gerald Courage and Neil Gurmukh (tax).
