Office Watercoolers has announced the acquisition of Leeds-based water cooler business Freshwater Coolers for an undisclosed sum.
Freshwater Coolers specialises in point-of-use (POU) water cooler and water boiler solutions, and has an installed base of approximately 5,000 water coolers and boilers across the UK. Office Watercoolers’ acquisition will extend its combined POU and bottled water cooler base to more than 10,500 units.
The deal for Freshwater Coolers represents the largest ever acquisition for the Staffordshire-based British Water Cooler Association member.
Office Watercoolers managing director Ken Skelton said: “Freshwater Coolers Plc has an excellent reputation for high customer service levels and is an ideal fit with Office Watercoolers Ltd. Our companies share many core values as well as customers and industry suppliers and we intend to further enhance these essential relationships. This will be our largest acquisition to date and is a major step forward in terms of our longer term strategy of building a national water cooler company focusing upon delivering outstanding products and service levels in this market.”
