DS Waters has announced the purchase of two companies this month

DS Waters of America has acquired Florida-based bottled water distributor Jensen Distributors, the company's second purchase since its takeover by a private-equity firm.

DS Waters, which was bought by Crestview Partners in September, said yesterday (18 November) that the deal will allow it to distribute Jensen-controlled bottled water brands Mountain Valley and Diamond Spring, alongside its Crystal Springs bottled water in the Tampa area. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

A DS Waters spokesperson said of Mountain Valley and Diamond, which are owned by Mountain Valley Spring Co: “These unique brands complement our range of bottled drinking water and give customers a wider choice of beverages.”

This month DS Waters acquired Wurth Bottling Corp's Gold Springs Premium Spring Water Co, also for an undisclosed sum.
