Hoya Vision Care Canada has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Central Optical Company, an optical laboratory based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Following the acquisition, Central Optical will be relocated to Hoya's facility, also in Winnipeg, which has recently been expanded. The president of Central Optical, Rob Soloway, will join the management team of Hoya Canada as a business development manager. Central Optical was founded by Charles J. Soloway, Rob's father, and Oscar Soloway, Rob's uncle, in 1955. The acquisition does not include Europa Eyewear Canada, formerly known as Cenoco, which Rob Soloway will continue to run as a separate entity.
