Segulah acquires the personal care companies CCS and Opus Health Care

11 May, 2011

Segulah IV L.P. has acquired two leaders in skin care, dental care and dis­infection: CCS, which was earlier owned by Segulah II, L.P., and Opus Health Care.

“CCS is returning to the Segulah family. The combination with Opus Health Care will create a new player with a stronger product range and broader customer base. This puts us in an excellent position to develop further as a strong supplier and value-added partner to our customers through continued product development and geographical expansion,”says Jonas Nilsson, CEO of CCS.

“We and CCS have both been owned by groups where we were outside the core busi­ness. Now we will be an independent, focused group with an owner willing to invest and seeking expansion,” says Thomas Rappe, Commercial Director at Opus Health Care.

CCS is one of Sweden’s leading producers and distributors of personal care products in skin and dental care, pharmaceutical products in skin and eye care, and gastroenterology, and is a supplier and partner primarily to pharmacies in Sweden, the rest of the Nordic region and the UK. CCS is focused on prod­uct development and has a strong product portfolio with brands such as CCS, Oliva by CCS and Vera by CCS. It has also developed products in collaboration with other brand owners such as Bamse and Odd Molly. Production, which includes contract manufacturing, is located in Borlänge, Sweden.
