Being in the tank is good for business
You might think if your business is in the tank, the rest is downhill.
But not if you're Andy Brahms, chief executive of Tamarac-based Armchem International, distributors of restroom, cleaning and safety products, including its best-selling "Mile to a Roll" toilet tissue, to restaurants, hospitals, offices and more.

The firm, celebrating its 30th anniversary, launched its business introducing the center-pull towel dispenser to this area, and restroom supplies continue to be the company's core business. The firm has grown to sell more than 50,000 products to 25,000 customers worldwide, and recently expanded and now employs more than 120 people.
While personal need products tend to be recession-proof, customer service isn't, says Brahms. There are many supply options and providers in this competitive market, so its with a sharp focus on creating lasting relationships with employees and clients that makes the difference, he says.

ARMCHEM INTERNATIONAL CONTINUES EXPANSION WITH THE ACQUISITION OF HANDI-CLEAN PRODUCTS
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL. - 2012 - South Florida's Armchem International, a leading business--to-- business provider of specialty industrial and maintenance products to over 25,000 customers worldwide today announced that it has acquired the Greensboro--based Handi--Clean Products, a manufacturer of environmentally friendly cleaning products and equipment.
Armchem Now Adds Manufacturing Capabilities and Increases Territories
“The acquisition of Handi--Clean allows Armchem to expand in many exciting ways, said Armchem CEO Andrew Brahms. “For the first time in our 30--year history, we will now have manufacturing capabilities. This allows us to provide our customers with additional product offerings in both the Armchem and Handi-- Clean lines and deliver very competitive pricing,” said Brahms.
The deal also enables Armchem to grow their market share in key regions, including North and South Carolina, home to many of Handi--Clean's largest accounts. Brahms will focus his efforts on account building and product diversification, and current CEO Clark Bunting will remain involved in the day to day operations of Handi--Clean, a business that was founded in 1953.
This acquisition is the third step of an expansion plan that began last year at Armchem, which was actually precipitated by the recession. While most companies were cutting back and laying off employees, Brahms took the opposite approach with an aggressive business strategy to increase the sales coming from current domestic clients as well as introduce products to a more international market.
To do so, Brahms created a
5,000 square foot call center, hiring 15 new inside sales people/support staff to compliment the outside sales that Armchem was built on. Due to the call centers success, the company increased their storage space by 4,000 square feet and hired additional warehouse staff.
