DS Services of America, Water, Vending, OCS ATLANTA -- DS Waters of America, a nationwide bottled water and office coffee service provider that is rapidly growing through acquisitions, has changed its name. The new DS Services of America Inc. better reflects the company's evolving portfolio of products, brands and services, officials said.

"Over the years, we've made investments to expand our portfolio of products and services," said DS Services president and chief executive Tom Harrington. "In addition to expanding our position in the bottled water home and office delivery business, we have also created meaningful market positions in the coffee service and water filtration industries."

The company has been gobbling up bottled water and OCS routes over the past several years. In 2012, DS Waters ramped up its OCS presence in a big way when it acquired Standard Coffee. | SEE STORY

As it announced its name change, DS said that it is poised to provide "flexibility for continued line expansions into new and emerging beverage and non-beverage categories."

Separately, DS Services announced its acquisition of Roaring Spring Water of Washington, DC.
