To expand its services business for independent eye care professionals in the United States, particularly on the West Coast, Essilor of America acquired a majority stake in OOGP, one of the five largest contact lens distributors in the US. Created in 1985, OOGP has three distribution centers in Oregon, Alabama and Hawaii and will contribute $50 million in full-year revenue.

Essilor of America also acquired a controlling interest in KBco, one of the largest polarized lens distributors in the United States. Created in 1987, KBco is based in Centennial, Colorado and has annual sales of $31 million. A recognized specialist in polarized lenses for the US ophthalmic optics industry, KBco markets a broad range of products for retail chains and independent eye care professionals.
