Canadian Distributors consolidate to strengthen their national Footprint
One of the oldest privately owned Canadian specialty chemicals distributors, Debro Inc. (Brampton, ON – Canada), has announced that it has aquired 100% of the shares of “industrial specialties” distributor Tartan Color and Chemical Inc. (Missisauga, ON – Canada) for an undisclosed sum. The two companies will be merged.
Tartan was founded by Robert Houston in 1980 and is currently being managed by his son David Houston, who will move to the role of President, Industrial Specialties in the combined entity. The acquired company is complementary to Debro in terms of markets served, supplier relationships, product offerings and customers, Debro said in a statement. The main focus will be on Industrial Specialties, Food Ingredients and Home & Personal Care.
Besides its home base in Brampton (ON), Debro has warehousing partners in Vancouver (BC), Calgary and Edmonton (AB) and Montreal (QC) and thereby realises national coverage.
