Big Erics Inc. gets bigger with acquisition of MACKMariplex

Big Erics Inc. announced today the acquisition of the Stellarton, NS-based company, MACKMariplex. The merger of two highly aligned companies allows Big Erics to continue to strengthen their offering as trusted partners both in end-to-end product and service-based solutions to commercial kitchen customers and discerning home chefs alike.

“We are thrilled to welcome the MACKMariplex team to the Big Erics family,” said Norm Mensour, CEO of Big Erics Inc. “In addition to sharing a history of selling best in class equipment in Atlantic Canada and in airports across North America, this acquisition also expands our product offering to include new categories, like high-quality commercial concession equipment and supplies from Gold Medal brands.”

On the heels of the successful launch of Big Erics at Home, a residential customer focused store within a store concept in fall 2018, which invited retail customers into a newly refreshed showroom of curated residential-use kitchen, and entertaining tools, this merger of MACKMariplex means Big Erics has expanded its offering yet again for its customers.

Big Erics' acquisition of MACKMariplex will mean further expansion outside of its already robust product lines, into the post-sale equipment service space. MACKServices, a division of MACKMariplex has offered technical services including equipment installation, plumbing and electrical to commercial and food service customers across the Maritimes for over 28 years.

“We look forward to joining the Big Erics team as we take the next step in growth by joining forces with the largest independently owned foodservice distributor in Atlantic Canada” commented Jim Ripoll, former principal of MACKMariplex.

“Big Erics provides amazing buying power, and full territory coverage throughout each province, as well as select projects across Canada and into the USA, which equates to a great customer experience.” Ripoll continued.

Big Erics employs over 100 in the Atlantic region with the largest in-market sales team. Offering customers over 50 years of expertise and complete service solutions-rooted in the understanding of each customers' unique needs.
