Mallory Safety and Supply, Portland, Oregon, announced that it has acquired Wise Safety & Environmental, a St. Louis, Missouri-based distributor of safety supplies and abatement products and services. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
As a result of the acquisition, Mallory will expand its safety equipment, supply-chain, and service operations coast-to-coast. Mallory will now have 30 locations across the country with the addition of eight Wise Safety full service and warehouse locations in Boston, MA, Buffalo, NY, Louisville, KY, St. Louis and Kansas City, MO, Little Rock, AR, Houston, TX, and Jacksonville, FL. Also, with the Wise acquisition, Mallory expanded its existing operations in Denver, CO, and Salt Lake City, UT.
“Wise Safety is one of the most recognized, customer-focused safety operations in the country,” said Mallory President Tim Loy. “Their high-value delivery fits squarely into our Mallory model. This expansion will now provide customers with rapid turnaround of their necessary safety and supply chain needs. As a result, the Mallory Team will be able to increase service and, in most cases support, and deliver 24-hour turnaround on safety supplies to all areas of the contiguous USA.”
Mallory has made more than 20 acquisitions in the last 16 years. The Wise Safety integration is the largest to date, giving Mallory a national footprint and the ability to directly service large operations.
