TORONTO, April 2 /CNW/ - Trillium Health Care Products Inc. (a global
contract manufacturer in Health & Beauty, Pharmaceutical & OTC, and
Nutritional Health and Wellness products) and Grant Lawson, Trillium's founder
and CEO, are pleased to announce certain initiatives to further drive customer
focus and capabilities.
Effective April, 2007, the Retail / Private Label business of Trillium
Health Care Products will be separated from its Contract / National Brand
business, into Body Care Innovations Inc.
Body Care Innovations, with Grant Lawson as its Chairman, will operate
with a renewed energy in North America's Retail and Private Label businesses.
The Perth, Ontario facility, where most of North America's private label bar
soap is manufactured, will now operate under Body Care Innovations, together
with Body Care Innovations' recently acquired liquid personal care product
manufacturing facility in Brampton, Ontario. This new liquid capability and
re-committed focus is a significant step in Body Care Innovations' goal of
providing one-stop shopping for the retailer's private label and other
requirements in personal care. This step will also encourage the growth of new
and exciting product innovations and broader line-ups, to more fully serve the
rapidly growing retail and private label segment.
"The reputation for excellence and pro-actively pioneering new products
will flourish under Body Care Innovations!", said Grant Lawson. "Body Care
will also be expanding its offering to include nutrition and other wellness
and lifestyle products in its capabilities in the near future."
Trillium Health Care Products now will have a driven, singular focus on
personal care and health products for multi-national branded companies.
Trillium's Cincinnati, Ohio facility, together with its Brockville, Ontario
facility have undergone significant manufacturing improvements and expansions
for further efficiencies and effectiveness. They are currently
state-of-the-art facilities with the highest quality control processes, to
help ensure customer success in a highly competitive market.
"This separation of businesses moves Trillium Health Care Products
further towards its stated goal of being 'North America's full service
contract manufacturer of choice' for value added personal care and health care
products," said Grant Lawson.
"Reputation in research and development, innovation, and value-added
capabilities, will be driven forward by the people and culture in each of
these two entities, as both evolve to achieve further excellence in their
respective market niches," concluded Grant. He added that customers and
suppliers are encouraged to visit the web-sites of the two entities as sites
evolve over the coming months, and to contact their company representatives
for further details.
