Edwards Garment Acquires Andrew Rohan
Edwards Garment Co., based in Kalamazoo, Mich., announced the acquisition of HMB Sales of Larchmont, N.Y. HMB Sales has manufactured and marketed Andrew Rohan brand sweaters to the business-to-business market for more than 25 years. Edwards Garment is a manufacturer and supplier of casual and uniform apparel. According to Gary Schultz, president and CEO of Edwards, the acquisition plan is a part of the company’s strategic expansion plan. The Andrew Rohan sweater line becomes part of the Edwards Garment line that includes shirts, blouses, pants, skirts, shorts, suit separates, chef apparel and aprons.
“Joining forces with Andrew Rohan allows us to take full advantage of the many synergies between the two organizations,” said Schultz. “We serve many of the same customers and the availability of the Edwards line gives Andrew Rohan distributors many more options for their customers. In much the same way, Edwards’ customers will see new opportunities as we add the prestigious Andrew Rohan sweater line to our offering.”
Edwards expects a smooth transition. “By retaining key personnel, we will ensure that Andrew Rohan customers receive the same high level of service and quality that they have come to expect,” explained Schultz. Edwards plans to continue to market the full range of styles currently offered by Andrew Rohan. On-site embroidery—already an area of expertise at Edwards—will now be offered with the new sweater line as well.
