Johnson-Lancaster and Associates has expanded its operations by acquiring Bezac Equipment Company.
The deal sees the former company – one of the largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealer in the States, takeover the Ohio-based Bezac, which focuses largely on chain restaurants.
Bezac will retain its name whilst becoming a division of Johnson-Lancaster and Associates and its 13 employees are expected to retain their jobs.
Amongst these are long-time executives Bill Custer and Leonard Mochtyak, who will form the leadershop of the division as president and vice president.
“Johnson-Lancaster continues to grow mostly organically but with the addition of some intelligent acquisitions that are a good fit both strategically and culturally,” said Kristen Horn, vice president of operations for Johnson-Lancaster and Associates.
“Bill Custer and Leonard Mochtyak have developed an excellent team and culture which has resulted in them having an outstanding reputation with their customer base.
“We feel we both can learn from each other and we will make both Bezac and Johnson-Lancaster better.”
