S&S Activewear Acquires TSF Sportswear

April 8, 2022

S&S Activewear (“S&S”), Bolingbrook, Ill., has acquired TSF Sportswear, Birmingham, Al.

By acquiring TSF, S&S gains greater access to markets in the Southern United States, while TSF’s customers can now select from S&S’s 100+ brand offerings and benefit from a greater depth of inventory driven by S&S’s nationwide network, according to the company.

“We’re very pleased to have TSF join the S&S family,” says Jim Shannon, S&S CEO. “There’s a great fit between our two businesses. TSF brings some amazing talent as part of this new partnership, and we are confident the acquisition will add a great deal of value to TSF’s loyal customer base.”

S&S has made major investments in its North American capacity and technology in recent years. Continuously growing, S&S plans to retain TSF’s south Florida and Puerto Rico locations and invest in additional inventory and a broader SKU offering in those buildings. TSF’s Arlington, Texas operation will relocate to S&S’s Fort Worth facility, providing TSF’s southern and western customers access to an additional 375,000 sq. ft. of inventory and brands.

According to S&S, products can now reach 99% of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico within two days and 44 states in the U.S. in just one day.

“Joining forces with S&S gives us access to new technologies and resources, and a greater depth of inventory and brands,” says John Feinberg, owner, and president of TSF Sportswear. “It’s a very mutually beneficial agreement, and we look forward to our new partnership.” — D.S.
