King of Prussia, PA (February 4, 2021) – Quench, a leading provider of filtered water solutions for businesses and dealer partners across the United States and Canada, announced today that it has acquired Trusource H2O Canada, a provider of Quench’s Wellsys brand of bottle-free drinking water systems based in Montreal, QC. Trusource is Quench’s second acquisition of 2021 and 10th acquisition since the beginning of 2020.
Founded in 2010, Trusource is Quebec’s leading provider of bottle-free water coolers for business. Trusource H2O leader David Lacombe and founder Gal Karpfen will be joining Quench Canada’s leadership team. Lacombe will be Quench Canada General Manager and Karpfen has been named a National Account Manager for Canada.
“We are excited to welcome Trusource’s customers and team to our growing Quench family,” said Tony Ibargüen, CEO of Quench. “This acquisition expands our presence in Canada meaningfully and is another example of offering our dealers attractive exit opportunities.”
“I am confident our customers will be just as excited as I am to join the Quench family,” said Gal Karpfen, founder of Trusource H2O. “Quench’s dominance in point-of-use water coolers, combined with their world-class customer service, make them a natural acquirer for us.”
David Lacombe added, “I am thrilled to join an organization that is driven to release innovative products and filtration systems to the marketplace without losing sight of delivering great service to their customers. Additionally, the Quench team was knowledgeable and easy to work with throughout the sale process.”
This acquisition follows Quench’s initial foray into the Quebec market with the acquisition of Jonli Water Services in late 2019. To further support Canadian customers, Quench recently launched a new Canadian website featuring both English and French-Canadian language options along with details of all of the products and services offered in Canada.
