Hicksville, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
Hercules Corp. today announced their merger with Elmhurst Metered Appliance Inc., founded in Elmhurst, N.Y., by Samuel R. Wexelblatt in 1946, and currently headquartered in Philadelphia. The combined companies will go forward together under the name Hercules Corporation, headquartered in Hicksville, N.Y.
“This is a very exciting event for both companies, for our employees and for our customers. Our greatest assets have always been our people, and by joining forces, we have just made a huge increase in the quality of that asset,” said Andrew May, chief executive officer and president, Hercules Corporation.
The merger will create a more comprehensive infrastructure with faster response times, which will allow Hercules, a third-generation laundry provider of end-to-end laundry room design, installation, management and service, to provide a wider array of services, enhanced technology, and deep expertise to all of their customers.
This is a merger of two highly experienced family laundry providers. “We hold similar values and philosophies on doing business: produce an excellent job for our customers, an emphasis on trust, honesty and integrity and a commitment, shared by three generations within the May family, of superior customer service,” said Adam May, grandson of founder Alfred May, who has been active working in the company for a number years since graduating college.
Although the two merged companies will operate as one company, customers of Elmhurst Metered Appliance will be able to depend on the same quality of work and service that they have been accustomed to for more than sixty years. With an existing customer base centered within the areas of Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, existing customers of Elmhurst Metered Appliance will be able to take advantage of Hercules’ leading technology and innovation within the industry, combined with its extraordinary passion and vision for the future.
This merger combines two highly respected, experienced and extremely compatible family businesses and commercial laundry providers, and strengthens the long-standing reputation that Hercules commands within the industry. The combined companies will deliver the most innovative solutions and services, and superior customer experience within the highly competitive and dynamic marketplace in which they operate.
