Toronto ON, July 18, 2017 – Citron Hygiene™ is pleased to announce that it has acquired Chemsyn Chemical Corporation (Chemsyn), effective July 17, 2017.

Citron Hygiene President and CEO Peter Farrell states, “this acquisition supports our corporate growth strategy to be fully committed to our three core platforms of Washroom Hygiene, Pest Control and Warewash/Chemical solutions. This expansion to our current portfolio in the warewash and chemical solutions space brings critical mass to our operations group and strengthens our offering in this segment.” Mr. Farrell continued, “We are delighted to have been able to acquire such a high-quality industry player, and are further excited that the entire leadership of Chemsyn and all members of the founding Buda family will be joining Citron. Their knowledge of the industry will help accelerate our growth in this space in North America.”
Domenic Buda, Director of Operations, Chemsyn adds “Chemsyn has provided high quality commercial warewashing and laundry services and solutions to its customers for the last 40 years.

I look forward to working closely with Peter’s team as we plug into their financial strength and continue our strong growth trajectory.”
