D&S Car Wash Supply & Lometa Capital Partners Acquire D&S Systems (DSS) – Restructured as D&S Field Sales & Service (FSS)

June 2, 2022 – D&S Car Wash Supply (“D&S”), a portfolio company of Lometa Capital Partners, has acquired D&S Car Wash Systems (“DSS”).

Headquartered in High Ridge, MO, DSS was the exclusive distributor of D&S’s brand-recognized, high-performance car wash systems including in-bay automatic, self-serve, and truck wash products, in the St. Louis MSA. In addition to selling equipment, DSS provided its customers with the day-to-day service required to keep a top-tier car wash in excellent working condition including new equipment install, maintenance, chemical supply, and business advice. DSS customers included neighborhood car washes, regional c-store chains, car dealerships, and car rental facilities, among others.

DSS will form the nucleus of D&S’ new Field Sales & Service division (“FSS”) which will focus on areas where historical distributor coverage has been non-existent or weak. FSS will strengthen D&S’ relationship with car wash owners by enabling seamless integration from new equipment sale to install, to chemical sales and maintenance, and full-circle back to equipment refurbishment. FSS will augment its organic growth with additional distributor acquisitions to further expand D&S’ reach.

Tim Huntington, CEO of D&S, said, “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with DSS and formally bring them onto our team after years of successfully working together at the distributor-level.”

Bill Hoaglin, former owner of DSS and President of FSS, remarked, “A combination of D&S and DSS creates an exciting value proposition for car wash owners which will separate FSS from its competitors in a rapidly changing marketplace.”
