US: DS Waters of America buys Hillcrest Springs

By | 13 February 2013

DS Waters of America has acquired home and office bottled water delivery business Hillcrest Springs for an undisclosed sum.

The Atlanta-based group said late yesterday (12 Febuary) that it will take over the running of bottled water delivery as the two companies merge. The deal will also mean DS Waters can "enhance its offerings with not only the Alhambra brand of water, but also coffee service and water filtration services", the company said.

John Lock, DS Waters' VP, general manager Northern California region, said: "We are working to ensure a smooth transition and are integrating the new routes immediately."

Last March, the company acquired office coffee and tea service firm The Standard Companies
