WM Uniform located in Holland, Michigan has been acquired by Wildman Business Group, based in Warsaw, Indiana, according to a news release.
Combined, the company will have 440 employees and service over 12,000 customers in six locations throughout Indiana and Michigan.
“The opportunity to come together was driven by the President of WM Uniform, Patrick Van Tuinen’s eye toward succession planning and was made easy with alignment on our shared core values around honesty, integrity, relationships, excellence, living by faith, and treating others as they would want to be treated,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman Business Group. “We’re excited about the synergies created from our shared values and the ability to use business to change lives.”
Both companies are proud of the high percentage of long-tenured employees; many who have been with them 20 years or more. The combined business is on track to continue its 15 percent annual growth, add 20-25 employees each year, extend service offerings, and expand into additional locations in the region, according to the release.
“We are stronger together,” said Josh Wildman, CEO of Wildman Business Group. This partnership provides the opportunity to accelerate our growth – not just in revenues but with investment in our people.”
