With A.W. Mendenhall customers located in 10 Midwestern states, the acquisition will expand Bunzl's opportunities in janitorial and sanitary maintenance, as well as in the foodservice and industrial packaging sectors, according to Bunzl. Hal Wolken, former owner and president of A.W. Mendehnhall will continue to manage both locations along with his current management team.
"A.W. Mendenhall is an 87-year-old company with a proven record of delivering high quality customer service and we are excited about adding this company to the Bunzl family," said Patrick Larmon, president and ceo for Bunzl Distribution. "While the company will continue to operate the same as it has for years, they will have the benefit of our corporate programs and support."
