National Carwash Solutions (NCS) has announced that it has completed its previously disclosed acquisition of Zep Vehicle Care (ZVC) from Zep Inc. The new legal entity will be NCS Vehicle Care, Inc.
ZVC’s commercial car wash chemical offerings, marketed under well-known brands, including Armor All Professional, Blue Coral, and Rain-X, complement NCS’ existing products. These products are additive to NCS’ comprehensive equipment and service offering, including MacNeil Wash Systems, Ryko Solutions, TSS products and services and Vacutech Vacuums. ZVC also brings its PurClean water management and reclamation equipment brand to the combined entity.
“Today represents a milestone moment for our company as we officially welcome the Zep Vehicle Care team to NCS,” said Michael Gillen, CEO of NCS. “Joining forces will further enable us to provide car wash operators with an efficient and integrated sales and service experience to help them drive profitable growth.”
According to Greg Heyer, chief commercial officer of ZVC, Their organizations are natural complementary fits. “We’re looking forward to delivering the exceptional end-to-end solutions our customers have come to expect.”
Gillen will continue to serve as CEO of NCS, Heyer will lead the ZVC business, and executives from both NCS and ZVC will assume leadership positions across the organization. Berkshire Partners, an existing investor in NCS, is the majority owner of the newly combined company.
