ATLANTA -- DS Waters of America Inc. has acquired the office coffee and water filtration service divisions of Cascade Coffee Inc., headquartered in Everett, WA. This is the company's first acquisition in the OCS or water filtration segment since March 2012, when DSWA acquired New Orleans-based Standard Coffee Service Co.
Cascade Coffee has provided coffee services to business and industry throughout the Pacific Northwest since 1995. DSWA said it will continue to distribute Cascade's Compass Creek coffee brand to customers in Washington and Oregon.
Atlanta-based DS Waters serves more than a million businesses and homes across the country. It has been strengthening its presence in the OCS arena with acquisitions of several regional and national companies in recent years.
The nationwide water and office coffee service provider announced last month that it had agreed to be acquired by an affiliate of Crestview Partners, a New York-based private equity firm. DSWA president and chief executive Tom Harrington said the company's partnership with Crestview will provide capital for further acquisitions. | SEE STORY
