Supplier TSC Apparel (PPAI 174523), headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, has expanded into the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of Portland, Oregon-based Thinc Actionwear. Acquiring Thinc, which has been in business since 1980, helps fill out TSC’s presence in the Northwest, according to TSC Apparel’s news release.

“We are excited about the opportunity to serve Thinc’s customer base, and I believe they will also be pleased with everything that TSC has to offer,” says TSC Apparel CEO Bob Winget. “As a longtime local, family-owned business, Thinc is perfectly aligned with our ‘large enough to fill your needs, small enough to care’ philosophy.”

Fred Schroedl, president of Thinc Actionwear, adds, “We are excited about the positive impact this move will have on our customers—a greatly expanded product offering, deeper on-hand inventories and a national next-day shipping footprint. I know TSC Apparel is a customer-focused company that will continue to provide our many loyal customers with the quality service that they’ve come to expect from Thinc Actionwear.”
