In its 72nd acquisition, Jersey City-based Imperial Dade on Friday said it added Ralik, a Quebec-based company that specializes in the distribution of a large array of janitorial, packaging, shipping and safety products.

Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

Imperial Dade, under the leadership of Robert and Jason Tillis, chairman and CEO, respectively, 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.

Founded in 1997, Ralik has a 26-year operating history. The management team consisting of three entrepreneurial brothers, Ali, Hamdi and Shoukri Mustafa, has promoted a customer-centric culture that is evident in the strong relationships and growth over the years.

“I enthusiastically welcome Ralik to Imperial Dade. Ralik has a loyal customer base and a laser-focused commitment to providing an unparalleled customer experience, making the business a great addition to our growing North American platform,” Jason Tillis said.

“Ralik’s commitment to their customers and partners, along with their family-first culture, makes the business a great addition to our platform,” said Stephane Lapointe, president of Imperial Dade Canada.

“Imperial Dade is a market leader with a strong culture and differentiated service quality, and we are excited to join their family. Under the leadership of Bob, Jason and Stephane, we believe this partnership will strengthen our customer and supplier relationships,” Ali Mustafa, CEO of Ralik, stated.
