Hilco Vision has announced the acquisition of Optiplus and Proteye in the Netherlands. The move is part of Hilco's ongoing European growth strategy. Optiplus specializes in accessories, professional tools and lens-care serving for major chains and the independent market. Proteye specializes in safety spectacles and (water)sports glasses with correction lenses. Hilco Vision has recently established Hilco Benelux following on from the acquisition last year of Breitfeld & Schliekert in Germany.
