Wildman Business Group of Warsaw, Indiana, a fourth-generation family-owned and operated industrial laundry, announced they have entered an agreement to acquire California-based Provision Medical Products to give their distributors the opportunity to step into a larger market to diversify their revenue for long-term growth.
According to the release, Rick Germano, CEO of Provision, was looking for a partner that would give the best opportunity to the distributor network. Germano knew Wildman was the partner of choice because of the dependability and the additional product lines that will bring even more value to their national network of distributors. Distributors now have access to AEDs, eyewash stations, complete janitorial line, and premium restroom dispenser packages in addition to first aid kits and an expanded first aid line.
For Wildman’s expansive customer base, this provides a dependable and scalable first aid supplies resource for years to come. “Today’s market is unpredictable. Securing our own source of first aid supplies provides our customers and distributors with a quality partnership for the foreseeable future,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman Business Group. While Wildman is primarily known for their uniforms and mats service, 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 an alternative to larger players in the industry.
The California warehouse will be consolidated into Wildman’s Indiana warehouse to provide a centralized location with mid-country logistics, better availability, and timely shipping. Rick Germano (CEO) and Jayne Combs (General Manager) will continue to work with Wildman for the foreseeable future to ensure a seamless transition for the distributors.
Wildman seeks to partner with other independent service providers looking for a transition to provide an alternative succession plan to large nationals with the purpose of caring for customers and distributors and continuing their legacy.
