With headquarters in Boylston, Mass., Butler-Dearden Paper Services Inc. has become the 20th acquisition with Robert and Jason Tillis at the helm of disposable food service and janitorial supply distribution company Imperial Dade.
On Tuesday, the Jersey City-based company announced its acquisition of Butler-Dearden, a distributor of packaging supplies, printer paper, chemicals and janitorial supplies, serving the New England area.
Imperial Dade said the move strengthens the company’s presence in the regional market.
“Butler-Dearden is a leading distributor in New England and has an excellent commitment to service, which makes it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” Imperial Dade Chief Executive Officer Robert Tillis said in a prepared statement.
“This acquisition will enhance our ability to serve Butler-Dearden’s customers as well as our own,” said Jason Tillis, president, Imperial Dade, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to working with the Butler-Dearden team members and continuing to grow together.”
Last week, Bain Capital announced it agreed to acquire a majority stake in Imperial Dade, though the company will continue to be led by its current management team.
