Imperial Dade, a distributor of food service packaging and janitorial supplies and backed by Advent International, has acquired Classic Solutions, a distributor of janitorial sanitation and equipment products.

The addition of Classic’s location in Columbus aims to strengthen Imperial Dade’s existing presence in Ohio. The transaction represents the 57th acquisition for Imperial Dade under the leadership of Robert Tillis and Jason Tillis, chairman and CEO of Imperial Dade, respectively.

“Classic Solutions has an established reputation for exceptional customer service, which makes it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” says Robert Tillis. “Partnering with Classic affirms our commitment to provide the highest quality service throughout North America. Classic’s commitment to customer service aligns well with Imperial Dade’s philosophy and values.”
