Imperial Dade, which is based in Jersey City, New Jersey and is a national distributor of disposable food service and janitorial supplies, announced on Friday that it has acquired Cincinnati-based Mailender. Financial terms of the private transaction weren’t available.

Mailender is a distributor of janitorial supplies and janitorial packaging that’s led by Ken Mailender and Andrew Abel. The addition of Mailender will strengthen Imperial Dade’s existing presence in the Midwest and help it serve customers coast-to-coast. The Imperial Dade platform will operate over 90 facilities across the country.

“Mailender’s storied history in the industry and exceptional customer service make it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” said Imperial Dade CEO Robert Tillis. “The acquisition of Mailender provides us a foothold in the large and growing Cincinnati market which is key as we expand geographically and grow nationally with our customers.”

The Mailender transaction marked the 42nd acquisition for Imperial Dade under the leadership of Robert Tillis and President Jason Tillis. Founded in 1935, Imperial Dade serves more than 65,000 customers across the United States and Puerto Rico.

By leveraging Imperial Dade’s platform, Mailender customers can expect the same level of customized service coupled with a wider ranger of products and solutions, according to Imperial Dade.

“The legacy we have built here at Mailender over the past 90 years will provide a great foundation for growth for Imperial Dade in our region,” said Mailender CEO Andrew Abel.  “Under the leadership of Imperial Dade, we will be able to continue to provide exceptional customer service while accelerating the growth we have experienced in recent years.”
