“We have strong belief that partnering with Hilco Vision will bring an even stronger proposition to our customers while protecting what we have built over more than 20 years,” Lehrer said.

The two companies will operate independently for the next few months according to the integration roadmap, with LBI continuing to support sales and service, the release stated.

Hilco has direct subsidiaries in the U.S., Canada, UK, Germany, Benelux, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and China. Its product portfolio is concentrated on five product categories: professional tools, vision protection, consumer accessories, lenscare and eyecare.

LBI, founded in 1949, was one of the first eyewear companies to import European styles in North America, according to the release.
