S and S Activewear signed an agreement to purchase TSC Apparel. This comes on the heels of the acquisition of S & S by investment group CD&R (Clayton, Dubilier & Rice) earlier this year.
No word yet on the fate of the six TSC Apparel warehouses.
This is further concentration of the garment distribution business as TSC had previously bought over the years, Sol Schulz, California Shirt Sales, Thinc Actionwear, All-Star Activewear, and Georgia Tees. Over the years S&S had acquired Eva Sportswear and Americana Sportswear.
The purchase also included the TSC brands M&O and Tultex which will soon be available to S&S customers.
