Imprintable apparel distributor, S&S Activewear, has acquired Technosport Canada, which delivers sports apparel, headwear, and bags. S&S Activewear has grown from a single location in Bolingbrook, to a nationwide operation with over 1,800 employees, and more than 3.5 million square feet of warehouse space in six distribution centres across the US.

There is a great affinity between Technosport and S&S Activewear. Both are national apparel distributors that have built their reputation through a positive company culture, retail brand focus, and the development of relationships with employees, vendors, customers, and their communities. There are also clear parallels in the growth of the companies over the years. Technosport was acquired by the Beauchamp family in 2002, and since then, it has developed into a leader in Canada’s wholesale apparel industry. It is the only national distributor with a physical presence across all of Canada, with headquarters in Montreal and distribution centres in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec, the company said in a press release.

“We identified Technosport as an opportunity to expand across the border. We’re excited to inherit such a talented team and look forward to building on the success they’ve already achieved.” As a family-owned business established in the 1970s, Technosport has built a powerful reputation and recognisable brand across Canada’s wholesale apparel industry. Now, with S&S’s support, the company will be able to provide a larger product offering to Canadian customers,” Frank Myers, S&S’s chief operating and financial officer said.

“We’ve been friends with the S&S team for a very long-time, and chose them for this partnership, because like us, they are a family-owned business with the same company values. Our employees and our customers have always been our number one priority – they are like family, and we’re confident that this new relationship is going to be a great opportunity for all of us. The Technosport leadership team will continue to operate in the business alongside S&S, and we’ll be able to offer even more retail-inspired products to our loyal customers. We’re very excited to see what the future holds,” Luc Beauchamp, president of Technosport said.
