A New York-based private equity firm has acquired public safety distributor Galls and merged it with Cerritos, Calif.-based Quartermaster, Inc.
CI Capital Partners acquired Galls in September as a "platform investment in the public safety products market," according to a release.
"We are very excited to announce the merger of these two industry leaders," said Bob San Julian, Galls' chief executive. "Quartermaster's large customer base will benefit from Galls' broad product offering, high level of customer service, and East Coast distribution capabilities. In turn, Quartermaster's highly recognizable private label brand, long-standing relationships with key suppliers, and established West Coast distribution presence will be instrumental as we compete for customers in the public safety products sector."
Quartermaster is also a public-safety distributor that offers duty gear, uniforms, casual duty and tactical apparel, footwear, and accessories.
