US-based water and ice vending machine operator Glacier Water Services is to acquire the assets of the Aqua Fill water vending business.
Aqua Fill currently operates over 1,600 water vending machines located mainly in the western US. With this acquisition, Glacier will operate more than 23,000 machines in 46 states throughout the US and Canada.
Glacier Water CEO Brian McInerney said they expect to close the transaction by the end of October and will work aggressively to integrate the Aqua Fill business into their operations.
“We believe the acquisition will improve our geographic density and improve the financial performance of the company,” he said.
