JanSan and foodservice packaging distributor Imperial Dade announced two new acquisitions on Dec. 1: Ocean Township, New Jersey-based Country Clean Paper Supplies and Columbus, Ohio-based Classic Solution.

The deals mark the 57th and 58th acquisitions for Imperial Dade under Chairman Robert Tillis and CEO Jason Tillis, the company said. Financial details were not disclosed.

Country Clean, which is owned and operated by Frank Pavia, distributes foodservice packaging and janitorial supplies.

Classic Solution distributes janitorial sanitation and equipment products throughout the greater Columbus market. The company is owned and operated by James Creps.

“Imperial Dade is a market leader with a strong culture and differentiated service quality, and we are excited to join their family,” Creps said. “Under the leadership of Bob and Jason, we believe this partnership will strengthen our customer and supplier relationships.”

Imperial Dade said its platform will operate more than 125 distribution centers throughout the U.S. and Canada. The addition of Classic’s location in Columbus will strengthen Imperial Dade’s existing presence in Ohio, the company said.

“Classic Solutions has an established reputation for exceptional customer service, which makes it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” said Robert Tillis. “Partnering with Classic affirms our commitment to provide the highest quality service throughout North America.”
