Brady Industries, a Las Vegas-based full-line janitorial supply, equipment and foodservice distributor, on Wednesday announced the acquisition of Fitch Co., a Baltimore, Maryland-based distributor. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Fitch Co.’s history dates back to 1898 serving the Mid-Atlantic region. In the mid-1980’s Lynne and Raymond Kirsner took ownership of the company and continued to expand its service offering and product selection. They will be staying on to oversee all transitions and provide their unique expertise on the market.
In 2016, Brady opened a branch in Capitol Heights, Maryland. General Manager Radley Olsen will work closely with the Kirsners and the entire Fitch Co. team to optimize Brady’s presence in the Baltimore and Washington, DC, territories.
“Continued expansion in this market is very exciting,” said Travis Brady, president and CEO of Brady. “We have found great opportunity in this area and look forward to the experience of the Fitch Co team to further our mutual success.”
