Givex Completes Purchase of Kalex
Givex is happy to announce that it completed the acquisition Kalex Equipment Services (Kalex) on Jan. 25, 2022. The acquisition enhances Givex’s position as a growth-oriented company, with increased installation and servicing capabilities, and opportunities to upsell its omnichannel platform to the largest brands in the country.
“I’m very happy with how quickly Kalex came on board,” said Don Gray, CEO of Givex. “Our teams have already started going out on installations together and Kalex representatives are introducing us to their retail client base. We share a dedication to providing excellent service and are extremely excited to get to work for our clients,” he added.
Kalex is an IT service and consulting business that specializes in physical and digital retail enablement. It has more than 15,000 client locations across every sector in Canada, including leading brands such as Burger King, Harry Rosen, Hudson’s Bay Company, KFC, Laura Secord, Pizza Hut, Pizza Pizza, Rexall Pharmacy Group and Taco Bell. These client locations and brands will be joining Givex's already extensive client base across Canada.
According to Kalex president John Beaton, the synergy of the combined companies is already in play. “Givex and Kalex have started integrating their teams and businesses, with Kalex now installing GivexPOS systems and introducing Givex to its excellent retail and hospitality clients across Canada,” he said.
Kalex earned about $4.6 million in revenue in 2021 and Givex anticipates that amount to grow in the future.
