By Harold Bonazew, Arctic Beverages
On June 15, 2021, Arctic Beverages LP purchased Kleen All Enterprises, a distributor of cleaning and paper supplies as well as PPE (personal protective equipment) products. Kleen All is located in northern Manitoba with warehouses in Flin Flon and The Pas.
Kleen All carries chemical lines of Diversey, Betco, Buckeye, RML and some private labelled chemical. For paper products such as towels, wipers and toilet tissues they carry Kimberley Clark, Cascades, Pur and others. For PPE and work wear, they represent Helly Hansen Work, Timberland Pro, Carhartt, Pioneer (SureWerx), Richlu (Tough Duck), Keen, Baffin and many others.
Kleen All’s main customer base is northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, which includes industry (mining and pulp/paper), schools, hotels, restaurants, band offices, recreation facilities, RCMP, and other small businesses in the area.
Tim Smith started the company in 1997 and Korrena Bartram started working for Kleen All in 2010 (becoming a partner in 2017). Tim will stay on for the transition period out of the Flin Flon office and Korrena will manage and work in The Pas location. In all, Kleen All has eight full-time employees. “I believe Kleen All will fit Arctic Beverages like a glove,” says Tim Smith. “The products that Kleen All sells will just add to the vast array of items that Arctic offers its customers base. With Arctic’s vast infrastructure and distribution over most of northern Canada, we can provide cleaning and paper products, and PPE to every door that Arctic already calls upon whether it be a gas station, school or recreation facility.”
