On Feb. 1, JanSan and foodservice packaging distributor Imperial Dade announced the acquisition of Fresno, California-based Focus Packaging & Supply Co. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The deal represents the 59th acquisition for Imperial Dade under Robert and Jason Tillis, Chairman and CEO of Imperial Dade, respectively.
“Focus’ roughly 25 full-time employees share the common goal of providing their customers with the best service possible,” Imperial Dade said in its announcement. “The company never stopped supporting its customers through the pandemic and helped ensure school systems had the right products to create a safe learning environment for students and teachers.”
Imperial Dade said existing Focus customers can expect the same service, along with a greater offering of products and solutions.
“The acquisition of Focus provides us with a foothold in the growing Fresno market which is key as we expand throughout California,” said Jason Tillis. “We enthusiastically welcome the Focus family into Imperial Dade.”
Imperial Dade was ranked among Top JanSan Distributors by MDM in 2022.
