Galls and Quartermaster Merge to Create Leading Distributor and Marketer of Public Safety Products

Galls and Quartermaster Merge to Create Leading Distributor and Marketer of Public Safety Products

LEXINGTON, Ky. & CERRITOS, Calif., Jan 31, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Galls, LLC, a full service marketer and distributor of public safety, first responder and private security products, announced today that it has merged with Cerritos, California based Quartermaster, Inc. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Galls was acquired by New York-based private equity firm CI Capital Partners in September, 2011, as a platform investment in the public safety products market.

For over 37 years, Quartermaster has been a leading national multi-channel specialty distributor of public safety products. Its “head to toe” uniform and equipment solutions include duty gear, uniforms, casual duty and tactical apparel, footwear, and accessories. Quartermaster serves approximately 100,000 customers nationally ranging from private security, to federal, state and local law enforcement, to the U.S. Military. Quartermaster markets its products through a multi-channel selling strategy which includes dedicated salespeople, a highly efficient e-commerce platform, well-known seasonal product catalogs and four retail service center locations.

Bob San Julian, Chief Executive Officer of Galls said, “We are very excited to announce the merger of these two industry leaders. 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.”

Jim Duncan, current Chief Executive Officer of Quartermaster, will become President of the combined company. Mr. Duncan commented, “Quartermaster has achieved tremendous success on its own since 1974. As we look toward our future growth, we realize that joining forces with Galls and forming a national distribution platform is the best means of serving our customers. Galls and Quartermaster share a commitment to the highest standards of quality and customer service, making Galls an ideal partner for us going forward.”

“When we closed the acquisition of Galls last fall, it was our goal to build and position this business for long-term growth and profitability, both organically and through strategic acquisitions,” said Thomas Ritchie, Managing Director at CI Capital Partners. “Quartermaster’s strong brand recognition, marketing capabilities, and experienced sales organization make it an exceptional combination with the Galls platform.”

PNC Business Credit, AEA Mezzanine and PennantPark Investment Corporation provided financing for the transaction.

Stephens Inc. acted as financial advisor to Quartermaster. Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP provided legal counsel to Quartermaster and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP provided legal counsel to Galls.

Galls Releases An Updated Version Of Their Company Blog

Beginning today, August 23 2011, Galls is releasing an updated version of our company blog.

The new blog can be found at GallsBlog.com

Some recent blog posts include:

iPhone Apps for first responders…

Choosing the right boots for public safety jobs…

Suspect identification goes mobile…

Our goal with the Galls Blog is to provide you with valuable information that you can use at work with your colleagues or at home with friends and family.

Please enjoy. We also appreciate any comments you may have!

What Kind Of Jobs Do Galls Customers Have?

What Kind Of Jobs Do Galls Customers Have? It’s a fun question to ask and even more enjoyable to see what some of our customers do everyday.

Galls is a leader in providing apparel and equipment to those in public safety roles. Obviously, that means Galls’ customers are a strong mix of law enforcement professionals as well as firefighters, emergency medical responders and federal and military personnel.

However, while the majority of Galls’ customers do fit this profile, there are many other people in jobs and professions that we would not initially suspect. Dolphin Rescue? Health Physicists?

In a recent (and very informal poll) Facebook poll, we asked the simple question of “who is online today”. Facebook users could then ‘vote’ within different categories like Police or EMS. They could also add categories. This poll gave us a little more insight into who are customers actually are.

Out of 290 votes (through Aug. 12 at 1pm), the results of the poll showed: Customer Jobs

  • 92 Firefighters
  • 75 Police officers
  • 65 Emergency medical responders
  • 11 Security officers
  • 8 Federal or Military Personnel
  • 7 Explorers (awesome!)
  • 6 Corrections Officers
  • 3 Unemployed
  • 2 Ninjas (really? cool….)
  • 2 Girls waiting for school to start
  • 2 Probation officers
  • 2 Nurses
  • 1 Jet Engine Technician
  • 1 Juvenile Detention Officer
  • 1 Search and Rescue
  • 1 Police Recruit
  • 1 Certified Nursing Assistant
  • 1 Funeral Home Worker
  • 1 Airsmith / Gunsmith
  • 1 Storm Chaser
  • 1 Health Physicist
  • 1 TX Dolphin Rescue (we assume in Texas)
  • 1 Wrecker Operator

So in addition to policemen, firefighters and EMS we had explorers, a storm chaser, a gunsmith and a wrecker operator!

What we’ve learned is that our customers lead varied and unusual lives. Their professions, while occasionally dangerous, are also exciting. We assume they are also very rewarding too.

We’d love to hear more about what you do. Included are some other responses to the “who is online today” question.

You can see for yourself what people do and where they are located, although the attached image is a little fuzzy.

What do you do? Feel free to comment here or post to Facebook – we enjoy hearing from our customers!

How To Dress For A Tough Mudder Event

Tough Mudder is just the kind of challenge many Galls customers want to tackle. It’s amazingly physical. It’s mental. And it can be an ego bust or an ego boost.

What is Tough Mudder?

Tough Mudder is not your average mud run or spirit-crushing endurance road race. It is a 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie of those participating. Forget finish times. Simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honor.

Who participates in Tough Mudder events? Tought Mudder event

And while Galls is not affiliated with Tough Mudder or its events, we do support the efforts of individuals and teams who put themselves through physical and mental challenges. The drive that it takes to train for and finish an event like this is substantial.

If you decide that you and your buddies are ready for the race, here are some suggestions on what to wear during the event.

Shirts:

Under Armour Wounded Warrior Project Short Sleeve T-shirt – this performance shirt helps wick away moisture when you sweat helping you stay dryer and warmer – plus it helps support a great cause.

5.11 Wicking Muscle Mapping Shirt – the name says it all – stay dry, keep your muscles supported and perform at your maximum level.

Shorts:

Under Armour HeatGear Tactical Training Shorts – built for freedom of movement, these shorts are great for training and competition.

Accessories:

5.11 Station Grip Gloves – the perfect accessory while scaling wood walls or climbing rope ladders.

Under Armour Low Cut Socks – at $9.99 you can feel comfortable with the fact that you’ll likely be throwing the socks in the trash after the race.

Yes, Medical too:

Dyna Med First Aid Kit – on the ride home you can attend to any bruises, blisters, abrasions and cuts that you acquired during the event.

If you participate in Tough Mudder or any other similar event that challenges your work ethic and your mental toughness, we tip our cap to you.

Good luck!
