On March 1, JanSan and foodservice packaging distributor Imperial Dade separately announced the acquisitions of three companies in Canada: Solutions Sherby, Servicorp Industrial Supplies and Action Paper & Packaging. Financial details for the trio of transactions were not disclosed.
The flurry of moves brings Imperial Dade’s total number of acquisitions to 62 since Chairman Robert Tillis and CEO Jason Tillis took over leadership of the company in 2007. Jersey City, New Jersey-based Imperial Dade, listed among MDM’s Top JanSan Distributors in 2022, has now made four acquisitions in 2023 after adding Focus Packaging & Supply in February. The company announced 14 acquisitions during 2022.
Founded in 1989, Solutions Sherby is a Quebec-based distributor of janitorial sanitation, industrial packaging, and healthy and safety products. With locations in Granby, Magog and Trois-Rivières, Solutions Sherby primarily serves the greater Montreal and Quebec City areas.

Also based in Quebec, Servicorp Industrial Supplies was founded in 1986. The distributor of cleaning, paper and packaging supplies serves the Montreal area from its headquarters in Saint-Laurent.
“The legacy we have built here at Servicorp over the past 36 years will provide a great foundation for growth for Imperial Dade in Montreal,” Lorne Silcoff and Ken Webber, co-founders and Presidents of Servicorp, said in a news release. “We are excited about the future of Servicorp under the leadership of Imperial Dade.”
“Servicorp’s reputation in the industry and exceptional customer service make it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” Jason Tillis said in the release.
