GME Supply announced yesterday it has completed the acquisition of Gearcor, based in Conklin, NY. Gearcor is a major supplier of FR uniforms, workwear, safety footwear, PPE and fall protection equipment to companies primarily in the wind and renewable energy sector, utilities, and energy distribution industries.
The acquisition supports GME’s strategy to expand throughout North America. Headquartered in Columbia, MO, GME also has showrooms, fall protection training facilities and distribution centers in Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX, Corona, CA, and Denver, CO. Additionally, Gearcor’s facility near Binghamton, NY enables the Company to better serve customers in the Northeastern United States.
“We’re incredibly excited to have Gearcor join our team of Gear Experts,” said Beau Aero, President and founder of GME. “Our shared focus on unmatched service and expertise fits perfectly with the needs of the customers we serve in construction, telecom and the utility industry. Gearcor’s unique software platform simplifies procurement and distribution of uniforms and safety equipment to companies and their employees, particularly in the wind, solar, and energy distribution markets. The two companies will be able to leverage each other’s distinct advantages to better serve our customers.”
“Our partnership with GME gives Gearcor greater buying power and more locations to reduce shipping times to our customers,” said Carol Yeager, Vice President at Gearcor. “Together we will be able to provide more value to similar industries that would benefit from our business model such as utility infrastructure and offshore wind.”
