Grimes, IA-based Ryko Solutions Inc. has announced that it has agreed to acquire National Carwash Solutions L.P. (NCS), the largest independent car wash service organization in North America. The transaction is expected to close by mid-July.

NCS serves customers across 14 states in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, including regional convenience store chains and professional tunnel operators. Staffed by a 60-person team, NCS has a long established reputation for high-quality customer service.

“The combination of Ryko Solutions and NCS results in a strengthening of our commitment to our collective operator base in four key areas: enhanced service footprint; an expanded focus on the delivery of improved uptime; the ability to more thoroughly support competitive car wash systems; and the opportunity to adopt NCS’ ‘360 Degree Partnership’ approach to the customer’s business, whereby expert knowledge, professional service, and practical solutions are applied across the customer’s business to enhance their business success.” said Steven L’Heureux, CEO of Ryko Solutions.
