The Jersey City-based janitorial supply firm Imperial Dade added the Ohio & Michigan Paper Co. to its portfolio. The transaction was the 69th acquisition under the leadership of Robert and Jason Tillis, chairman and CEO of Imperial Dade, respectively.

Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

With roots dating back to 1868, O&M has a longstanding history and reputation for unparalleled customer service. Owned and operated by the Leininger family, O&M is a premier distributor of industrial and janitorial products throughout the Midwest.

“O&M’s storied history in the industry and exceptional customer service make it a great addition to the Imperial Dade platform,” Robert Tillis said. “The acquisition of O&M provides great value in the large and growing Midwest market, which is key as we expand geographically and grow nationally with our customers.

“We enthusiastically welcome the O&M family into Imperial Dade,” Jason Tillis added.

“The legacy we have built here at O&M over the past 155 years will provide a great foundation for growth for Imperial Dade in our region. Under the leadership of Imperial Dade, we will be able to continue to provide exceptional customer service while accelerating the growth we have experienced in recent years,” Kevin Leininger, chairman and president of the Ohio & Michigan Paper Co., said.
