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, NJ and Bordentown, NJ locations.

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

Jason Tillis said, “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.”
