Culligan-owned Quench has acquired point-of-use (POU) water systems company, Blue Caffe, for an undisclosed sum.
Founded in 2002, Blue Caffe is a supplier of POU water systems and coffee services located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. According to Quench, the acquisition of Blue Caffe – which has been described as a multi-city Wellsys dealer – will enhance the company’s footprint across the state.
Ryan Hartley, VP of corporate development for Quench, said: “This is our third acquisition already in 2022 and is another example of our ongoing commitment to providing exit opportunities for POU dealers whenever they are ready”.
Brad Kelley, Blue Caffe’s owner, added: “Quench has been a trusted partner of Blue Caffe, with their extensive product line and strategic nationwide resources I know that the synergies of products and staff will significantly enhance opportunities to serve our customers in an even better capacity”.
This year, Quench has already acquired two other water solutions companies, Pure Aqua Tech of Michigan and Waterfresh.
