On February 1, 2017 Sweis Inc. Professional Salon & Spa Products Distributor will officially acquire Independent Salon Services, an independently-owned distributorship spanning Northern California and Nevada. The marriage of the two family-owned distributors will unite two sales teams that will now comprise 54 sales representatives and eight professional stores. Sweis’ territory will expand to cover all of California and Nevada.
“This acquisition will confirm Sweis’ position as one of the strongest independent, family-owned distributors in the country,” Karl Sweis, president of Sweis Inc. Professional Beauty Distributor, says. “Our goal is to be the professional beauty industry’s top beauty resource for products, service, and education while helping to cultivate growth and success for our Sweis employees as well as our salon customers. We look forward to doing that alongside Independent Salon Services. They have built a wonderful team and a strong customer base and we are excited to unite our efforts.”
Sweis doesn’t not plan to make any staffing or operations changes. In addition, Independent Salon Services Kymberly Helser, vice president of sales and Thomas Clarke, vice president of operations, will transition to Sweis, Inc. and retain their current responsibilities.
