Hilco Acquires Suppleyes

The transition closed June 1.




PLAINVILLE, MA — Hilco Vision has acquired Mississippi-based ophthalmic supplies company Suppleyes.

The transition closed June 1. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ross Brownlee, CEO of Hilco Vision, said, “Over several decades Suppleyes has developed a high value relationship with eye care professionals. As we worked through the process of coming together, we came to appreciate our shared commitment to putting service at the heart of all that we do. By integrating Suppleyes into our ophthalmic supplies subsidiary, Eye Care and Cure we allow that focus and service culture to thrive, while providing Suppleyes customers an even broader portfolio of pharmaceutical, diagnostic and optical supplies, truly giving them a one-stop-shop. The COVID-19 pandemic has tested us all in so many ways but Hilco Vision remains committed to broadening our offering to the eye care professional via both acquisition and innovation.”

Shane Hixon, owner of Suppleyes, said, “We could not be happier to share our customers in the eye care industry with a company like Hilco Vision which has such a strong track record in customer service.”

Together Hilco Vision and Eye Care and Cure offer a national distribution network for eyecare professionals with over 30,000 products in stock, from pharmaceuticals and diagnostics to vision care and optical products.

“Suppleyes is a great fit. We see our mission as one of making access to supplies simple so eye care professionals can focus on patient care. Hilco Vision will continue to broaden our product portfolio to create value for our customers,” said John Lakey, director of the ophthalmic supplies division of Hilco Vision.


Hilco Vision is a global eyewear/eyecare company delivering comprehensive solutions to customers. It has direct subsidiaries, including Eye Care and Cure, in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, Australia, China and the Netherlands.
