North American Corporation and WAXIE Sanitary Supply today announced their partnership with FEMSA, a global leader in production, retail and logistics has become official. The companies are each regional leaders in the jan-san, packaging and specialty products distribution industry serving government, commercial and industrial clients with the brands they know and trust. Together, they will have significant national scale, operating a network of 26 distribution centers across the country.
North American and WAXIE are highly complementary businesses with little overlap in existing customers and geographies. The two companies also match up well with vendors and product categories that allow customers to ensure a safe, healthy and clean environment. By combining strengths and capabilities, the companies will expand available portfolio offerings while also diversifying across multiple product categories and vertical markets.
Even as they operate as a single entity, WAXIE and North American will maintain their respective identities.
FEMSA has acquired a majority interest in the new partnership and John Miller and Charles Wax will serve as co-CEOs and remain minority investors. A publicly traded company on the NYSE (FMX) and BMV (FEMSAUBD), FEMSA’s mission is to drive both economic and social value through its businesses. Its vision includes a focus on long-term prosperity and ownership, putting the values of integrity, responsibility, professional development and service at the forefront.
