The  closing was effective March 3.

"This transaction marks the beginning of a journey to an exciting  future," Wilson said. "We are excited to be part of the Belron family and  the undiscovered potential it brings to our customers, clients and  associates. Belron is known for its ability to be a master brand builder  with their well- known brands throughout the world. Now that the  transaction is closed, we can benefit from this expertise and take  advantage of being a part of a successful global entity."
