Perrigo Co., Allegan, Mich., said it acquired Lake Worth, Fla.-based Unico Holdings, a manufacturer of store brand pediatric electrolytes, enemas and feminine hygiene products. The acquisition is expected to add nearly $50 million to Perrigo’s annual sales.
“The acquisition of Unico expands our store brand product offering into important categories that we currently do not offer,” said Joseph C. Papa, Perrigo’s chairman and CEO. “This investment further solidifies Perrigo’s commitment to providing our customers the broadest portfolio of store brand products in the industry and to meeting the world’s growing need for quality, affordable healthcare.”
