TORONTO — December 15, 2014 — AmeriPride Services, a textile rental services and supplier in North America, today announced the acquisition of Clean Rite Cleaners in The Pas, Manitoba. The company’s Saskatoon branch in Saskatchewan began servicing the new customer accounts in late November, under the leadership of Joel Bruce, General Manager.
“This acquisition provides a great opportunity to expand our market share in the area while introducing new products and services to the customers,” said Naiem Nairouz, Senior Vice President of Canadian Operations. “We feel this is a big win for our company and our new customers.”
Customers were informed of the change in early November and service representatives from AmeriPride began visiting with them soon after. Nairouz said the company is executing a seamless transition of the customers to AmeriPride and they are working hard to start building strong partnerships with the new customers.
“I am very confident in our ability to successfully service our new customers,” said GM Joel Bruce. “Our Saskatoon production facility has the capacity and resources to take on the additional volume, and we are eager to incorporate them into our business.”
AmeriPride is one of the few privately owned and operated companies serving this market. The family-owned business has been operating in the Manitoba market for nearly 40 years.
