Since it was formed in 2016 with the merger of Amercare, LLC and Royal Paper Products, Inc, AmerCareRoyal (ACR) has been on an incredible journey.
Its products reach far and wide, from US chain restaurants like Five Guys, Tim Horton’s and Yum Brands to major food distributors. Altogether, today ACR is a single stream resource for over 6,000 disposable products used in the food service, janitorial, sanitation, industrial, hospitality and medical industries.
“We've transformed from a regional player to a leading national supplier of disposable products across 20 categories in the food service industry,” comments Brett Barnello, ACR’s Chief Operating Officer. “We have unmatched infrastructure and product breadth. We have over 6,000 product SKUs. We're about a billion in revenue today, and we have an aspirational growth plan to triple that to be at US$3bn in five years or so.”
As Jeff DeSandre, ACR’s Chief Integration Officer, describes, what is particularly notable about the organisation is that it is greater than the sum of its parts.
“If you add up the eight acquisitions that we've made to form ACR, they equate to less than our current total revenue,” he explains. “The work that's being done here allows for synergizing. There is a large portion of organic growth that's part of this acquisitive growth and I think that's pretty interesting that the sum of the component parts is much less than what we are today.”
