Brady Expands in California with Acquisition of Mission Janitorial & Abrasive Supplies

Las Vegas – Brady, a full-line janitorial supply, equipment and foodservice distributor, announces the acquisition of Mission Janitorial & Abrasive Supplies based in San Diego, CA.

Since 1939, Mission has earned a well-deserved reputation of exceptional service in janitorial and abrasive supplies. Their integrity and go-to-market approach have distinguished them in the Southern and Central California market led by owners Kevin and Greg Carlson.  Kevin will stay on as General Manager of the San Diego and Bishop branches, while Greg will lead the abrasives segment.

“The integration of Mission into Brady is a wonderful partnership,” said Travis Brady, President and CEO of Brady. “The alignment of our core values, customer-centric approach, and product expertise put us in a great position to expand our presence in California while providing exceptional service to our customers.”

Brady will continue to operate at both Mission locations in San Diego and Bishop, California.



Brady has been pioneering the way products and solutions are delivered to facility and foodservice professionals since 1947. At the heart of Brady’s operation is a community-minded culture driven by a workforce of more than 500 employees currently in 24 locations throughout Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah including its original Las Vegas, Nevada headquarters.  Brady also owns and operates three Maintenance Mart retail stores in Arizona.

Brady’s approach to partnership is unique by providing integrated customer support, expertise, technical support, and service across a full spectrum of customer needs including extensive facility offerings, complete dish machine and laundry machine service, equipment sales, rentals and service and foodservice supplies.

Brady provides these specialized solutions for customers in key commercial market segments including hospitality, education, healthcare, government, building service contractors and more.
