join company on puzzle pieces and handshake

Imperial Dade has entered a Management Services and Inventory Purchase Agreement, effective immediately, to manage, oversee, and operate the Edison, New Jersey, branch of Joshen Paper & Packaging (“Joshen”) through a three-month transitionary period and ultimately integrate operations into Imperial Dade’s existing Jersey City, New Jersey, and Bordentown, New Jersey, locations.

“We are committed to a smooth transitionary period and look forward to providing excellent service to the customers of Joshen’s New Jersey branch and further growing our business in the tri-state area,” says Robert Tillis, Imperial Dade CEO. 

Joshen Paper & Packaging is a Cleveland-based distributor of janitorial, sanitation, packaging and office supply products. Going forward, customers of Joshen’s Edison, New Jersey, branch can expect the same exceptional customized service that Imperial’s customers experience today with an expanded offering of distribution solutions.

“We are excited about Joshen’s New Jersey branch’s future under the leadership of Imperial Dade,” says Joshen CEO Bob Reiner. “Our customers can expect the same great service and responsiveness with access to a broader product offering going forward.”

Since 2009, Imperial Dade was been growing at a rapid pace with nearly 20 acquisitions.

“The addition of Joshen’s New Jersey branch represents another step towards creating the nation’s leading provider of foodservice disposables and janitorial supplies and is a good example of our M&A, finance, IT and operational teams’ ability to work together and creatively find solutions to grow our business,” says Jason Tillis, Imperial Dade CEO.
