HAYCO Group acquires CTR Group, a leading developer and manufacturer, of diffusion devices and consumables.

Headquartered in Hong Kong based, FMCG manufacturer Hayco has acquired Portugal based CTR. The acquisition gives Hayco a broader offering for customers, access to new market segments, and greater capacity for the creation and manufacture of reliable consumer products.  

Bringing the best together Founded in 1991 by Pedro Queiroz Vieira and Vitor Oliveira, CTR develops and supplies products to large multinational FMCG companies.  CTR comprises 1,100 employees in Portugal, China, India, and the United States.  CTR is a significant player in household devices for air care, pest control and other product areas including pet care. This complements Hayco’s capabilities which include home cleaning, oral care, water filtration and hydration devices.  The new combined entity presents huge potential for innovation, product development, and business expansion for customers. CTR and Hayco share expertise in product development, plastics injection molding, and device assembly in Southern China.  

“CTR is well respected for good reason,” says Christopher Hay, Hayco’s CEO. “Like Hayco, CTR is a family business, and we share a similar culture of developing and supplying high-quality products, while providing high-quality service to customers. The new entity will continue to be a majority family-owned business and will offer unique career development opportunities for the combined leadership and employees.  

Hayco operates in Hong Kong, China, and the Dominican Republic, as such the combined network provides a global manufacturing platform of 5 countries.  CTR and Hayco also have strong leadership teams, as well as complementary customers, technologies, and products.
