Reliable Plus™ Acquires Midwest Carwash Supply
December 9, 2022
Reliable Plus, a Minnesota-based vehicle wash equipment and solutions provider, and part of the Lube-Tech family of brands, is announcing the acquisition of Missouri-based Midwest Carwash Supply (MCS).
As one of the largest distributors of car wash equipment, chemicals and supplies in the nation, Reliable Plus works with in-bay automatic, tunnel, self-serve, heavy-duty, and specialty washes. Reliable Plus proudly serves customers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
With this acquisition, Reliable Plus will be expanding its geographic coverage area to include Northern Missouri, and Western Illinois. All of the current MCS teammates will come over to the Reliable Plus family with this acquisition, along with all physical assets.
Brenda Donato, General Manager of Reliable Plus, said: “While we’re pleased to have found an opportunity to expand our geographic footprint, we’re even more excited to welcome the MCS teammates to the Reliable Plus family”. Brenda continued on to say: “We’re confident that MCS customers will continue to receive a high level of service, while also benefiting from the additional support of the expanded Reliable Plus team.”
MCS was founded by owner Jeff Adams in 2003 and serves hundreds of customers throughout Western Illinois and Northern Missouri. They are headquartered in Weldon Spring, MO. Some of the key vendor relationships that MCS maintains, includes those such as Washworld, Motor City Washworks, National Pride Self-Serve Equipment and All Paws Pet Wash.
About the acquisition, Jeff said: “When Jennifer and I decided it was time to retire to do some traveling, we were primarily concerned with finding a buyer for the business that had values that matched our own, and who would take care of our teammates and existing customers throughout the transition. We’ve found that partner in Reliable Plus and are confident in their ability to make this transition as smooth as possible.”
