Jersey City-based Imperial Dade said Oct. 1 that it acquired Mailender of Cincinnati, Ohio.
The transaction represents the 42nd acquisition for Imperial Dade under the leadership of Robert and Jason Tillis, chief executive officer and president, respectively. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
Mailender is a leading distributor of janitorial supplies and janitorial packaging run by Ken Mailender and Andrew Abel. With nearly 90 years of experience, the company has built a strong reputation for its knowledgeable sales force, wide breadth of products and customer service.
With the addition of Mailender, Imperial Dade’s existing presence in the Midwest will expand, positioning it to be better able to reach customers coast-to-coast.
The Imperial Dade platform will operate more than 90 facilities across the country and solidify its position as the national leader in specialty distribution. By leveraging Imperial Dade’s market-leading platform, the company said that Mailender customers can expect the same exceptional customized service coupled with an even greater offering of products and solutions.
“Mailender’s storied history in the industry and exceptional customer service make it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” said 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. We enthusiastically welcome the Mailender family into Imperial Dade,” said Jason Tillis.
“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. 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,” said Mailender CEO Andrew Abel.
