Sani-Marc's acquisition of Alpine Specialty Chemicals is fourth transaction in six months
Established 50 years ago, Canadian cleaning and sanitation specialist Sani Marc Group is continuing to grow with its recent acquisition of Ontario-based Alpine Specialty Chemicals - its fourth transaction in less than six months.
Sani Marc manufactures and distributes cleaning and sanitation products for a wide range of customers primarily in the commercial, institutional, industrial, food & beverage and pool & spa maintenance markets. In 2018, the company produced approximately 55 million Kg of sanitation products and fulfilled some 200,000 orders.
Alpine manufactures and distributes warewashing and laundry products primarily for the food service, hospitality and healthcare markets, as well as offering a complete range of related equipment and maintenance services, serving its Ontario customers through branches in Chatham, Kitchener, Orillia, Ottawa and Sudbury.
"As a major player in Ontario's warewashing and laundry industry, Alpine has been able to grow and retain a large customer base for decades through exemplary customer service," notes Pierre Goudreault, president of Sani Marc. "This acquisition aligns with Sani Marc's goals of breaking into this industry and increasing its product and service offering."
Robert Harrington, president of Alpine, says: "Alpine Specialty Chemicals, a privately owned Canadian company, has been in operation since 1989. Sani Marc was the natural choice to assure its continuity and its unparalleled customer service."
Sani Marc plans to expand the Alpine offering nationwide to offer customers end-to-end service.
Sani Marc's has over 550 employees working at 17 branches across Canada, enabling the company to offer its customers equipment maintenance programs, on-site staff training and consulting services for optimising operations. Sani Marc also offers floor maintenance equipment that boosts employee productivity and lowers cost of ownership.
