by Siobhan Hiscott

Perrigo Company plc, an Irish-registered manufacturer of private label over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, is set to expand into the oral care market after acquiring Ranir Global Holdings LLC for US$750 million.

Ranir is a private label oral care company with a portfolio of more than 300 oral care items, including power and manual toothbrushes, dental floss, flossers, and interdental brushes.

‘The addition of Ranir to the Perrigo family illustrates a key component of our new strategy, accelerating growth by pursuing adjacent self-care categories,’ Murray Kessler, Perrigo president and CEO, said in a statement.

Headquartered in Dublin, Perrigo currently sells over-the-counter healthcare products for colds, allergies, and pain relief.
