Imperial Dade Acquires Central Paper
Published Monday, October 9, 2017

Imperial Dade, a national distributor of disposable food service and janitorial supplies, completed its acquisition of Central Paper Products Co. Inc. in Manchester. The transaction represents the 12th acquisition for Imperial Dade under the leadership of Robert and Jason Tillis, CEO and president of Imperial Dade respectively.

Founded in 1948, Central Paper is a distributor of paper, plastic, janitorial and office products serving NH, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. Central Paper was one of the founding members of Network Services in 1968. For Imperial Dade, the acquisition of Central Paper represents a strategic initiative to further penetrate the New England region and expand its footprint.

“Central Paper’s exceptional reputation in the industry, dedicated customer service, and strong community presence align tremendously well with the Imperial Dade platform,” says Robert Tillis. “We enthusiastically welcome the Central Paper team members to Imperial Dade and look forward to working together to grow the business further.”

Matt Kfoury, president of Central Paper, says, “The Kfoury family has built a lasting legacy in Central Paper over the past 70 years. We are confident this legacy will continue under the leadership of Imperial Dade. My brother Fred, my sister Chris and I are excited and looking forward to expanding and growing the business in New England.”

“Our vision is to expand our reach both through organic growth and strategic acquisitions of market leading companies and operators,” says Jason Tillis. “The acquisition of Central Paper is another step in Imperial Dade’s strategy to establish our position as the nation’s premier provider of foodservice disposables, paper products, and janitorial supplies.”
