BSN Sports Acquires Team Gear
BSN Sports earlier this month acquired I.D. Clothing Company, which does business as Team Gear, based in Whippany, NJ, supported by its in-house decoration and customization facilities.
As part of the acquisition, the Team Gear leadership and its sales and support teams will join BSN Sports. The Team Gear office will transition into a regional sales office, expanding BSN Sports’ network of locally based sales and service teams. Team Gear’s decoration operations will remain under current ownership while joining BSN Sports’ third-party decoration system.
“The addition of Team Gear to the BSN Sports family is an exciting milestone in what has proven to be an incredible year for our team with the resurgence of team sports, “ says Terry Babilla, BSN Sports’ president. “We look forward to this opportunity to expand upon Team Gear’s trusted reputation for customized product.”
“The ability to serve coaches, athletes and teams through our Team Gear family over the years has been an incredible experience,” adds Team Gear operating partner Jeff Rappaport. “We are excited about the opportunity to continue creating lifelong memories for local athletic programs by joining BSN Sports while providing an expanded selection of products, resources and support through their national brand.”
