G&K Services Canada Inc, a subsidiary of G&K Services Inc, has bought Quebec-based uniform and textile service company Nettoyeur Shefford Inc for an undisclosed sum.

G&K estimates the acquisition will add US$5-6 million in annual revenue.

Robert Wood, president, G&K Canada said: "The acquisition of Shefford, which has been serving the market for more than 70 years, provides additional coverage within the province of Quebec."

The deal follows the purchase in August of Keefer Laundry Ltd, a textile laundry company serving the Vancouver and Whistler areas of British Columbia.

"We continue to pursue acquisition opportunities throughout North America to broaden our geographic coverage to more effectively serve national and local account customers," said Richard Marcantonio, president and chief executive officer.
