Restaurant takeout industry paper and plastic products manufacturer Kari-Out has entered an agreement to acquire Sanfacon’s US towelette business.

Sanfacon specialises in manufacturing various paper products for the restaurant industry including moist towelettes, paper wraps and liners, placemats and more.

Kari-Out has been seeking to increase the production of hand sanitisers for hospitality and front-line workers.

With this acquisition, Sanfacon’s Virginia facility will strengthen Kari-Out’s position in the US as hand sanitising wipes, gels and surface cleaners’ maker and distributor.

The purchase will also improve the production capacity of its personal protective equipment (PPE) products.

Kari-Out CEO and president Paul Epstein said: “We believe that the high-demand for sanitising products is here to stay, even after the coronavirus is long gone.
