“We are pleased to welcome Prodene Klint to the GOJO family,” said Mark Lerner, GOJO president and chief operating officer. “Both Prodene Klint and GOJO, as third-generation, family-owned companies and category leaders, will advance our shared vision as the global leader in healthy skin and healthy places. The strategic expansion with Prodene Klint provides many opportunities for learning and positive synergies for both organisations.”

Eric Vignot, chief executive officer, Prodene Klint, said: “What intrigued us most about expanding with a leader like GOJO was the similarity of vision. Prodene Klint and GOJO will expand our geographic footprint, serve global customers and expand access to diverse ideas and resources. Joining with GOJO is a win-win for Prodene Klint, our employees and customers. We are excited about the opportunities ahead.”
