Kodiak to operate as an affiliate of Dickies

Apr '08
Williamson-Dickie Mfg Co, makers of Dickies, the leading global workwear brand, announces that it has acquired Kodiak Group Holdings Inc, Canada's leading manufacturer and distributor of work and outdoor footwear. The acquisition underscores Dickies global growth strategy and unifies the leadership of the Dickies and Kodiak brands in Canada and the United States.

Under the agreement, Kodiak will operate as an affiliate of Dickies and maintain its brand names, licensing program and stores. Kodiak manufactures Kodiak and Terra boots, including safety footwear and casual footwear, licenses apparel and accessories and owns Terra Footwear.

Additionally, the company operates Work Authority stores and mobile units throughout Canada. Kodiak is an iconic Canadian brand recognized for rugged, quality products many of which are still produced in Canadian factories.

“The Kodiak and Dickies brands are complementary – both are rich in heritage and resonate with durability and quality,” said Kevin Huckle, president of Kodiak Group Holdings, Inc. “This acquisition marks an exciting opportunity for Kodiak. It allows us to continue to manufacture our products and maintain our high brand standards as we leverage the strengths of each organization.”

Dickies and Kodiak are both family founded brands established in the early 1900s. The two companies have stayed true to their roots and continued to focus on their mutually shared core customer, the everyday worker.
