Apollo Healthcare Corp. has been co-founded by Charles and Richard Wachsberg, who will remain shareholders and co-CEOs.

Stronger footprint in North America

With this acquisition, Anjac Health & Beauty group continues their external growth strategy and further strengthens their footprint in North America, after the acquisition of Cosmetics West in 2019.

Great opportunities are opening up for our international customers especially when it comes to industrial robustness and innovation!," explains Aurélien Chaufour, CEO of Anjac Group.

After Cosmetix West and Feltor in 2019, and Roval Cosmétiques in 2020, Anjac signs with Apollo their 8th acquisition within five years.
