In 2015, Deb Group was acquired by SC Johnson, a privately held, family company and one of the world’s leading manufacturers of household cleaning products, and products for home storage, air care, pest control and shoe care.
In 2016, SC Johnson purchased the Hand Hygiene and Surface Disinfection business from STERIS Corporation. This acquisition brought well known formulas such as Alcare Plus, Cal Stat Plus, BactoShield, CV Medicated Lotion Soap, Kindest Kare, Soft ‘N Sure and the Coverage disinfection products into the Deb Group. This portfolio was integrated into DebMed in order to provided an added focus on infection prevention in healthcare.
