JERSEY CITY, N.J., and SAINT JOHN, New Brunswick — Imperial Dade, a leading distributor of foodservice packaging, printing papers and janitorial supplies, last week announced the acquisition of Pro-Tech Sanitation Ltd.

The transaction represents the 89th acquisition for Imperial Dade under the leadership of Robert and Jason Tillis, chairman and CEO of Imperial Dade, respectively.

Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

Imperial Dade remains committed to the strategic focus created more than 15 years ago to continue to grow both through organic initiatives and a disciplined acquisition process.

By leveraging Imperial Dade Canada’s market leading platform, Pro-Tech customers can expect the same exceptional customized service coupled with an even greater offering of products and solutions.

"I enthusiastically welcome Chris and the Pro-Tech employees to Imperial Dade in this next chapter of profitable growth," said Jason Tillis, CEO of Imperial Dade.
