Distribution group DeWolf, who focus primarily on the North American Personal Care, Color Cosmetic and HI&I markets, will acquire specialty chemical distributor Tempo Canada as it looks to strengthen its position in the Canadian cosmetics market.

"The DeWolf Companies have had a strong desire to expand our business model into Canada. With the acquisition of Tempo Canada, we are now in the position to fully execute our strategic vision"​ said Hank DeWolf, president and CEO, DeWolf Companies.

"Since its inception 28 years ago, Tempo Canada has been providing the Canadian market with a similar approach in supplying specialty chemicals. By combining forces, we will be able to maximize the potential of each of our companies, offering an overall distribution advantage for the North American market."

Strategically positioned

With this acquisition, DeWolf will now be strategically positioned to offer one channel to the Personal Care, Color Cosmetic and HI&I markets throughout North America.

The synergies of the combined organizations will allow the organization to capitalize on the significant growth opportunities that exist in the Canadian Personal Care market.

"We are proud to have The DeWolf Companies guide Tempo into its next phase of growth,"​ said Eno Agro, president of Ontario-based Tempo.

No big changes

"Like us, The DeWolf Companies are a family-owned business with core values built upon integrity and decency. I look forward to watching the company I started 28 years ago grow alongside DeWolf Chemical and Glenn Corporation."

Similar to the markets served by DeWolf Chemical and Glenn Corporation, Tempo Canada's sales and marketing efforts are focused on personal care, household, and nutrition.

The company will retain its name and identity in the marketplace and will continue to operate as a separate stand-alone entity with its own sales, supply chain and customer service teams operating from its existing offices and facilities; identical to how DeWolf Chemical and Glenn Corporation operate today.
