Expanding to the US market, Unisync, a vertically integrated Canadian enterprise, has entered in to a long-term lease of a Las Vegas area sales, service and distribution facility effective March 2019. The facility will be used to service Alaska Airlines, the first major US custom uniform programme, and as a base for supplying other new accounts in the US.

Unisync was selected as Alaska Airlines’ new uniform partner in mid 2016 and has been working extensively since that time with Alaska Airlines and its Seattle-based designer in the launch of its first major US custom managed uniform programme. The design, which has been more than two years in the making, will clad 19,000 Alaska, Virgin America and Horizon Air uniformed employees starting in early 2020. Unisync is responsible for all aspects of the programme including manufacturing, quality, safety, inventory planning, online ordering, customer service, and warehouse and distribution. The company will begin receiving and kitting the new custom uniforms at the Las Vegas facility in mid-2019.

Further, Unisync has also reached agreement in principle to acquire the New Jersey based hospitality business and assets, operated under the trade name Red the Uniform Tailor, from GALLS, LLC of Lexington, KY. The transaction, which is subject to certain closing conditions and the execution of definitive closing documentation, is expected to close on or before January 15, 2019.

Red the Uniform Tailor has been designing, manufacturing and distributing uniforms to the hospitality industry for over forty years. It offers its customers personalised service combined with a respected line of private label made-to-measure high quality uniforms and related apparel. The transaction with Unisync excludes the public service and security business which was purchased from RTUT by GALLS in late 2017.

"We look forward to the opportunity to provide continued service to the existing hospitality customers currently serviced by RTUT, including marquis corporations such as Disney, MGM and Hard Rock Casinos," said B James Bottoms, president of Unisync Group Limited. "I am especially pleased that the key management of the hospitality division of RTUT, namely Harvey Klein - President, Tracy J. Gluck - Vice President Sales, Lorelei Cheli – Design Director and certain other key employees will be continuing with Unisync to ensure a seamless transition of these valued existing clients of the RTUT hospitality business."
