SmartPak announced today that Henry Schein is now the majority holder of their company, calling it an “acquisition.”
Whether the partnership will change anything consumers like (or dislike!) about SmartPak remains to be seen. Paal Gisholt, SmartPak’s current President and Chief Executive Officer, will remain in that position.
Oak Hill Partners, a private equity firm and the original SmartPak management team are the other owners of the company.
