TSC Apparel Acquires All Star Activewear and Expands Houston Warehouse
Additionally, TSC Apparel is expanding its Houston distribution center by more than 50 percent, allowing for a wider product selection and deeper inventory in the most popular brands including American Apparel, Anvil, Gildan and Tultex to further support the expanding customer base in the Texas territory.
In early 2010, TSC Apparel added a new location in Houston to complement the three existing warehouse locations and provide next-day ground shipping across much of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. The acquisition of All Star Activewear will allow TSC Apparel to expand its base of customers as well as increase its growing sales force with the addition of Bob Ashy, All Star Activewear co-founder, bringing over 30 years of industry experience to the table.
TSC Apparel and All Star Activewear both service the imprinted sportswear industry with a focus on superior customer service, strong long-term business relationships and a great product offering. TSC Apparel is the successor company of T-Shirt City headquartered in Cincinnati; California Shirt Sales in Fullerton, Calif.; and Georgia Tees in Atlanta, all long-recognized suppliers in the industry that have played prominent roles in the sportswear supply chain over the last 30 years.
"All Star is a natural fit for the TSC Apparel family," said Blair Pike, sales manager. "Their customer focus and commitment to service complement our business philosophy well. The addition to our Texas sales team and larger facilities from which we can service our accounts will help us carry the momentum we have established in Houston into 2012 and beyond."
TSC Apparel supplies imprintable sportswear to the licensed apparel, corporate promotional products, and uniform industries, stocking and sourcing more than 18,00 styles of tees, fleece, headwear, sport shirts, outerwear and accessories from over 40 name brands. TSC Apparel operates from locations in Ohio, California, Georgia and Texas.
