The closing of the transaction is expected to take place imminently.
New Buffalo is a leader in screenprinting and apparel decoration, which, in conjunction with Anvil and certain other apparel manufacturers, provides high-quality screenprinting and decoration of apparel for global lifestyle and athletic brands.
The rationale for the acquisition of New Buffalo is to complement the further development of Anvil’s business with the major consumer brands which it supplies, and this customer base is expected to fully utilize the capacity of the New Buffalo facilities.
Although the main focus of Gildan’s growth strategy is the continued development of its company-owned brands sold through printwear distributors and retailers, the Company believes it also has a growth opportunity to build on Anvil’s business as a supply chain partner to global consumer brands.
Such customers are increasingly seeking to consolidate their sourcing with large-scale manufacturers which are strategically located in the Western Hemisphere, which can be trusted to ensure their brand reputation for product quality and which are committed to the highest standards of corporate social responsibility in their vertical manufacturing operations.
The key management of New Buffalo, including founding entrepreneur Jon Weiss, will continue to operate the business under Gildan ownership.
Gildan is a leading supplier of quality branded basic family apparel, including T-shirts, fleece, sport shirts, socks and underwear. The Company sells its products under a diversified portfolio of Company-owned brands, including the Gildan, Gold Toe and Anvil brands and brand extensions, as well as under license agreements for the Under Armour and New Balance brands.
