Dispensing systems and food safety products maker San Jamar has been acquired by Carlisle Companies for an undisclosed amount.
US-based San Jamar supplies the UK market through FEM in Scotland and has annual sales of $87m (£72m) and 120 employees.
The business will operate as a separate unit within Carlisle FoodService Products, a provider of professional-grade products for the restaurant, healthcare and janitorial sectors, including foodservice permanentware, table coverings, cookware, displayware, catering equipment and meal delivery systems.
Christian Koch said San Jamar has excellent brand recognition, well-entrenched sales channels and maintains leading positions in several hygienic and food management and safety product categories.
“We were presented with a unique opportunity to acquire San Jamar, a business that has been on our target list for many years with a coveted brand within the foodservice industry. San Jamar offers Carlisle FoodService Products innovative new products, opportunities to expand Carlisle’s presence in San Jamar’s complementary sales channels and a history of profitable growth.”
San Jamar specialises in smart disposables, dispensing and food safety. Products include hand safety gloves, chopping boards, pump boxes, cup and lid dispensers, condiment and straw organisers and napkin dispensers.
