Swish acquisition of Kemsol leverages longtime business relationship

Swish Maintenance, a leading distributor of sanitation products, equipment and service, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Kemsol Products Ltd., a Saskatchewan based fourthgeneration, familyowned company, serving the maintenance and sanitation needs of the province for 84 years, with locations in Regina and Saskatoon.

Swish Maintenance is focused on growth opportunities that are a good fit for our existing business. This announcement will result in a more competitive Swish with stronger capabilities to service our customers from
coast to coast. It enhances our national distribution network and retail Swish Clean-it Centre stores in Canada and builds on our st rong position in North America,” explains Andre Peters, CEO of Swish Maintenance.

Kemsol began as a distributor of household cleaners in 1934 and has evolved into an institutional and industrial manufacturing supply business. Kemsol manufactures and distributes a complete line of janitorial supply products, including leading environmental product lines.

The acquisition is expected to close in September. Swish-Kemsol, as it will be known in Saskatchewan, will retain all the existing Kemsol employees and management. This acquisition is leveraging a fifty-year shared business relationship and a customer service first vision.

DID YOU KNOW? Established in 1956 in Peterborough, Ontario, Swish remains a family-owned business with expanded national power and dynamic local presence to serve our customers through 18 locations coast-to-coast in
Canada and in the Northeastern United States.
