Counselor Top 40 supplier S&S Activewear (asi/84358) has acquired Eva Tees (asi/52835), the companies have announced. As part of the transaction, Eva Tees has been renamed Eva Sportswear (asi/52834), effective immediately, and will carry 40 new brands that are also offered by S&S Activewear. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
S&S said it purchased Eva, which is based in Piscataway, NJ, to have an East Coast presence that complements the company’s purchase of Americana Sportswear (asi/35722) in 2010. Americana is based in Santa Fe Springs, CA, while S&S is located in Bolingbrook, IL. According to S&S, all three companies will carry a similar product mix and assortment of brands, but will still operate as separate companies.
Eva Sportswear has relocated to a larger warehouse in Robbinsville, NJ, and began shipping from the facility on Monday, December 9. In addition, Eva launched a new website at www.evasportswear.com and will release an updated 2014 catalog in January. Eva Sportswear will exhibit with S&S and Americana at PPAI’s show in Las Vegas, the companies said this week.
