American wholesale company Hybrid Apparel has completed its acquisition of Air Waves, a market leading design and technology driven print-on-demand (POD) provider. Air Waves will continue to operate in Ohio, US and provide its print-on-demand and technology services to Hybrid’s retail customers, and global license and lifestyle brand partners.

Kyle Kantner, who acquired Air Waves in 2009, will continue to serve as CEO of Air Waves while serving as an executive member of Hybrid, the companies said in a joint statement.

“We have seen tremendous growth at Air Waves in recent years as online demand has soared and customers have recognised the value of our efficient on-demand digital solution. We are ready for the next chapter of accelerated growth with our new partner, Hybrid,” said Kantner. “This is a transformational opportunity for both teams at Air Waves and Hybrid, and we are excited to bring this innovative solution to all our partners.”

“Last year, Hybrid began a fulfilment relationship with Air Waves for select customers and we were very impressed with their team and capabilities. We are now beyond excited to bring POD to all our customers,” said Hybrid Apparel’s CEO Bill Hutchison. “We look forward to continuing to build our industry leading global platform with Air Waves.”

Hybrid Apparel is a leading global wholesaler of licensed, branded and private label apparel, and portfolio company of Altamont Capital Partners. It also operates the Junkfood Clothing brand.
