LEXINGTON, Ky. — Uniform and related equipment distributor Galls has acquired Cincinnati-based Roy Tailors Uniform Co., a regional distributor of public safety, transit and postal uniforms, the company reports. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Roy Tailors Uniform Co.,” says Michael Wessner, CEO of Galls. “Roy Tailors is a leader in the Ohio market and has distinguished itself through excellent service in its stores.”
“We are excited to build on the company’s success by pairing it with Galls’ breadth of product, national distribution capabilities, catalog and web presence and premier information technology infrastructure,” adds Wessner.
Family-owned and operated, Roy Tailors has been in business for more than 50 years, according to Galls.
“My father began Roy Tailors in 1958 by selling postal uniforms out of the trunk of his car,” says Randy Loftspring, president and CEO of Roy Tailors. “We have grown immensely since those humble beginnings, and it has been my greatest honor to serve the fine men and women in uniform.”
“Joining the Galls family, with its broad product offerings, wide distribution capabilities, and advanced technology platform, enables us to take the next step forward and service our customers at an even greater level,” adds Loftspring. “We are thrilled with this partnership.”
Roy Tailors is the second add-on acquisition for Galls under New York-based private equity firm CI Capital Partners’ ownership, according to the company, which acquired Galls in September 2011.
