Essco acquires the DVC Brand
We are pleased to announce that Essco has acquired the DVC® brand and all its rights, along with associated brands from Home Care Products. Founded in 1959, Home Care has been a premier supplier of replacement floor care accessories and filtration products which are used in a wide variety of applications for vacuum cleaners and other floor cleaning devices.
The DVC name is a well-known, high quality, established brand that offers an extensive assortment of vacuum cleaner bags, filters, belts, and other category related products. DVC offers a variety of filtration levels that includes standard, 2-ply Micro-Lined® filtration, allergen, and HEPA which meets strict OEM standards. Owning the DVC brand will enable Essco the flexibility to quickly meet the needs of our dealers, with the ability to provide customized dealer programs, packaging and bundling opportunities. Based on input from our dealers we are committed to expanding our assortment within the current categories, as well as identifying new product verticals. Manufacturing partners in the U.S.A., as well as abroad, affords Essco the nimbleness to bring products and solutions to our dealers faster than other suppliers.
Rob Glockner, CEO of Essco commented, “We have enjoyed a strong relationship with Home Care over the last three years as their Master Distributor and are looking forward to this next stage in our relationship. The main driver of this change was our ability to focus on and leverage our respective strengths – Home Care’s extensive and flexible manufacturing capabilities and Essco’s understanding of our dealers’ needs and the ability to meet them. Both of our companies felt that this new arrangement will provide the best possible value for our dealers.” Mark Howard, President of Home Care, agreed adding: “Essco has always championed the DVC Brand. With this purchase, they are now positioned to take DVC to the next level.”
Essco, founded in 1924, is a true nationwide distributor of vacuum cleaners and parts, homecare, and other specialty product categories. With over 90 years of experience, Essco has revolutionized the industry to become a one-stop-shop for all distribution needs.
