Wagg's Ltd., Orillia, Ontario, Canada, recently acquired HomeFresh Mat Rental and Linen Supply, Brampton, Ontario, according to a news release.

“Our business has slightly changed since our main focus was hotels and hospital linen in the ‘90s,” said Wagg’s Ltd. President Billy Wagg, a fifth-generation operator of the business. “We see our business to now be more of mats and mop rental, linen supply and uniform service. Our wide range of products and services will benefit our customers to provide them with all of their other needs, such as washroom products and restaurant chemicals.”

Wagg approached HomeFresh Services in early 2015 about doing business together. As discussions went on, a deal was struck for Wagg's Ltd. to acquire and take over servicing HomeFresh customers in its existing areas. HomeFresh is located in Brampton, and after this deal it will only service the Greater Toronto and Mississauga areas.

With more than 22 employees, Wagg said his company’s headquarters will remain in Orillia. Wagg said he knows the key to his company's success is excellent quality and service. "I'd have to attribute it to great employees and the service they provide, out on the road delivering and servicing, in the plant production and in the office," he said. "We've kept it manageable but aggressively searching for growth.”
