Wildman Business Group Acquires Northern First Aid

Wildman Business Group of Warsaw, Indiana, announced the acquisition of Hersey, Michigan-based Northern First Aid, according to a  news release. The customer base will begin receiving service from WM First Aid, a Wildman Company based in Holland, Michigan.

Dave Perales, owner of Northern First Aid, was looking for a partner that would continue to care for his customers.  According to the release, Wildman was the partner of choice because of their reputation and dependability.

While Wildman is primarily known for their uniforms, linen, and mat services, the company has been involved in the first aid and facility services industry for more than 20 years. This strategic focus has helped the company provide further value to their customers and offers a family business alternative to larger players in the industry. The acquisition of Northern First Aid brings first aid service to the Holland, Michigan based WM Uniform and WM First Aid.

We’re thrilled to welcome the Northern First Aid customers to our greater Wildman network and expand into the first aid service for our Holland WM team,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman Business Group. “This growth furthers our purpose of wildly changing lives and our mission of keeping teams and facilities clean, safe, and looking great.”

The team will continue to consult with Wildman throughout the acquisition transition to ensure uninterrupted service for all customers and that all questions are answered in a timely manner.

In 2023, Wildman has announced partnerships and acquisitions with WM Uniform and WM Apparel, Provision Medical Products, and Northern First Aid. Wildman seeks to partner with other independent service providers looking for a transition to provide an alternative succession plan to large national chains to care for customers and distributors and continue their legacy.
